PM Nikol Pashinyan: Armenia Ready For ‘Unconditional Reconciliation’ With Turkey.

Armenia is ready to re-establish diplomatic relations with Turkey without any preconditions, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in a recent interview with Corriere della Sera.

“We have said and I reiterate that we are ready to re-establish diplomatic relations with Turkey without any preconditions. The international recognition of the Armenian Genocide is not a precondition when it comes to re-establishing the diplomatic relations with Turkey. That recognition is a very important process, which is necessary not just for our relations with them but, as I have already mentioned, for the global prevention of genocides,” ARMENPRESS quotes him as telling the leading Italian newspaper.

Pashinyan referred also to the Armenian Genocide resolution passed by the US House of Representatives, appreciating the move as a a very important effort towards preventing  future crimes of genocide.

“Moreover, such decisions change the atmosphere in our region. Those are messages hinting the international community’s intolerance of this kind of aggressive policies. Unfortunately, a century after the genocide, Turkey is still perceived by Armenians as a possible security threat. The border with Turkey has been is close for nearly 30 years upon their own initiative  – not ours. It is open from the Armenian side”, the prime minister said.
