Yerevan: Progress in Armenia’s relations with Turkey on the horizon
In a new statement, Alen Simonyan, Speaker of the Armenian Parliament, hinted at a potentially positive shift in Armenia’s relations with Turkey soon.
“There is no talk of surrender on any front. We envision open roads, flourishing trade, a thriving Armenian economy, and a lasting peace,” Simonyan asserted. He pointed out that recent statements from the prime minister, coupled with current information at hand, suggest a likely upswing in Armenia’s relationship and border negotiations with Turkey, as reported by 1lurer.com.
For Simonyan, Armenia’s prosperity lies in its strategic involvement in the region’s economic tapestry. “Our nation can’t afford to isolate itself from the pivotal trade dynamics of the region. Our focus should be on establishing comprehensive connections with both Azerbaijan and Turkey,” he commented. Bolstering his claim with a promise, Simonyan added, “Should we achieve such connectivity and witness an economic growth rate of 11, 12, or 14 percent, Armenia’s economy could very well double or even triple. The resultant peace and prosperity would be palpable to our citizens.”
