Normalization talks between neighboring Turkey and Armenia should not be neglected but should continue, said Armenia’s premier on Wednesday.

The sides should do their best to see that the talks go on, Nikol Pashinyan said in an address to Armenia’s parliament in the capital Yerevan.

'The dialogue should be established'

Saying that the Armenian side is aware of all the possible risks involved in the negotiations, he added that he believes the negotiations should continue and dialogue should be established, Anadolu Agency reported.

The results might not come quickly, and Yerevan has told this to its international partners, said Pashinyan, adding that those partners fully support the normalization of bilateral ties.

Normalization process between Turkey, Armenia

Long divided by such issues as borders and the events of 1915, Turkey and Armenia last December named special envoys to discuss the normalization of ties.

Two rounds of talks followed on Jan. 14 and then on Feb. 24, the day Russia launched its war on Ukraine, an issue that has dominated the global agenda ever since.
