Armenia and Turkey Hold Secret Talks

(PanArmenian)–Secret talks between Turkey and Armenia–launched after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan wrote a letter to Armenian President Robert Kocharian–have failed to make any headway coming out of their third round.

A part of the third session of secret talks was held on the sidelines of the Turkey-European Union meeting in Vienna–Austria last March.

The Turkish side proposed the establishment of two committees to simultaneously hold talks on political issues and the Armenian genocide.

In response–Armenia rejected the preconditions set by Turkey. It underlined that scholars can debate the issue in conferences. Nevertheless Armenia did request the revival of political talks between the two countries.

Following Yerevan’s objection to the establishment of the two committees–Ankara is now preparing for the fourth round of secret talks.

The New Anatolian reported that Ankara will exert an effort to solve its problems with Yerevan.
