MP Garo Paylan Calls For Opening Of Armenian-Turkish Border.

“Let’s not seek heroism through history. Let’s seek peace through history. Let’s struggle to make peace between the Azerbaijani and Armenian nations,” Garo Paylan told reporters in the parliament in the capital Ankara.

Paylan urged the formation of “justice and reality commissions” related to “disasters” between the two countries.

Paylan also called on the Turkish government to open its border with Armenia which has been closed for 28 years.

“Let’s achieve peace between Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia,” he asserted.

Azerbaijan and Armenia, two former Soviet republics, fought a war over the disputed region of Upper Karabakh from 1988 until 1994. The two signed a ceasefire in 1994, but never agreed on a peace settlement. Upper Karabakh, which is in essence independent, remains unrecognized internationally as a separate state.

Turkey maintains that any resolution of the Upper Karabakh conflict should take into account Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity.

Turkey and Armenia have no diplomatic relations.
