Armenia is receiving positive signals from Turkey and is ready to respond positively, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian said on Friday.
Pashinian spoke about his assessments of the agenda items at a government meeting in the capital Yerevan.
Pashinian also referred to the relations between Turkey and Armenia in his speech and said: “We are receiving clear positive signals from the Turkish public. We will evaluate these signals, (by) responding to positive signals with positive signals.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on August 25: “We expressed that with the end of the occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh, a new window of opportunity has opened in our region for lasting peace and that we will do what is necessary if Armenia considers it. . “
Erdoğan has repeatedly proposed the creation of a six-country regional cooperation platform, saying it would be a win-win initiative for all regional actors in the Caucasus.
Commenting on his proposal to form a regional cooperation platform of six countries, Erdoğan said it was an initiative that can offer win-win opportunities for all parties: “If Armenia joins this process and takes positive steps, a new page in Turkey- Relations with Armenia can be opened. If new opportunities arise, it is obvious that Armenia will also have a serious advantage. Armenia will be the party that benefits the most.
Ankara has pledged its full support to Baku in its efforts to liberate its lands from Armenian occupation. About 20% of Azerbaijani territory had been under illegal Armenian occupation for almost three decades. In the most recent conflict which began on September 27, Azerbaijan reclaimed much of the land in and around the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave that it lost in a 1991-1994 war that killed around 30,000 people and forced many more to leave their homes.
After the signing on November 10 of a deal brokered by Russia to end the fighting and work towards a comprehensive resolution, Turkey agreed with Russia that its troops would also monitor the ceasefire. Ankara and Moscow signed an agreement to establish a joint observation center in Nagorno-Karabakh.
