Turkish-Armenian envoys hold first meeting in Moscow: Turkish FM

ANKARA: Turkish and Armenian special envoys will hold their first meeting in Moscow, the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said.

"Our initial understanding is that the first meeting would take place in Moscow. "Armenia's desire is in this direction," Cavuşolu said, adding that Turkey, on the other hand, wants direct contact for the subsequent sessions.  He told reporters at the foreign policy appraisal meeting for 2021, "We appointed a mutual special representative so that they could meet directly."

Flights between Istanbul and Yerevan will begin soon, according to the minister. Direct contacts and reciprocal visits between Armenia and Turkey should be made, and a road map for normalizing relations should be formed, Cavuşolu said.

According to the minister, the "Zurich protocols," which were signed between Turkey and Armenia in 2009 for normalization but were never recognized by national parliaments, have been cancelled for the time being.
