YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 14, ARMENPRESS: Armenian foreign affairs minister Vartan Oskanian refused on Thursday to make prognoses about what the policy of the new government of Turkey towards Armenia would be, advising to wait a little unless the government was fully shaped.
“I believe we shall have to wait and see what kind of policy towards Armenia and the region in general the Turkish government will adopt,” he said, adding that the European countries are doing the same. “The situation in Turkey is very interesting as it is the first time in the last 40-50 years when a single party will be ruling the country,” he said.
Turkish Justice and Development party celebrated a landslide victory in November 3 pre-term parliamentary elections. Oskanian said the first announcements of the new leaders of Turkey were very restraint and balanced.
Oskanian also said that neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan were expecting something special from a recurrent meeting of deputy foreign ministers of the two countries who are meeting November 15 in Vienna. They were picked up by the presidents of the two countries as their special representatives to keep afloat the negotiation process over Nagorno Karabakh.
