1048) Turkey’s Insistence On Keeping Armenian Border Is Really Not A Policy

“Unlike other countries, where borders are points of interaction and activity, Armenia’s borders to the east and the west remain closed. As a result, regional economic development suffers, Armenian FM Vartan Oskanian stated at the 61st session of the UN GA, reports the Press Office of the MFA of Armenia.

“However, with Turkey, it is more than our economies that suffer. It is the dialogue between our two peoples that suffers. Turkey’s insistence on keeping the border closed, on continuing to prevent direct contact and communication, freezes the memories of yesterday instead of creating new experiences to forge the memories of tomorrow. . . .

We continue to remain hopeful that Turkey will see that blocking relations until there is harmony and reciprocal understanding is really not a policy. On the contrary, it’s an avoidance of a responsible policy to forge forward with regional cooperation at a time and in a region with growing global significance,” he said.
