Turkish official made misleading statement on Armenian-Turkish relations
YEREVAN, JANAURY 22, ARMENPRESS. Turkey continues misleading the international community via spreading deceptive statements regarding the regulation of the Armenian-Turkish relations. The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Volkan Bozkir made a speech during the conference entitled "the Turkish Foreign Policy" held in London, where he attributed the blame for unregulated state of the Turkish-Armenian relations to the Armenian side. The Member of Parliament for the ruling "Justice and Development" Party stated: "Armenia is not ready to establish good relations with Turkey."
As reports "Armenpress" citing the Turkish media, according to Volkan Bozkir Turkey "takes a lot of steps for regulation of relation with Armenia". For instance, he mentioned the proposal put forward by Ankara about creating a commission of historians for discussions regarding the issue of the Armenian Genocide, but "the Armenian side did not give positive response".
The Turkish higher official "has forgotten" that the Armenian side replied to the abovementioned proposal regarding "the commission of historians", which was put forward six years ago, and stated that it’s necessary to create an intergovernmental commission not for the discussions regarding the Armenian Genocide, but for the discussions of issues regarding the elimination of consequences of the Genocide.
