Russian news agency reported "Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan wants an improvement in relations with neighboring Turkey and plans to invite Turkish President Abdullah Gul to Yerevan."
"I will make further steps to stimulate Armenian-Turkish relations and I will most likely invite Turkish President Abdullah Gul to Yerevan to watch a football match between the Armenian and Turkish national teams," Sargsyan told representatives of the Armenian ethnic community in Moscow.
"The Turkish side is proposing to set up a commission that would study history. We are not against this idea, the Armenian president said, insisting "but the commission can only appear after the border is opened between our two countries."
Turkey closed the border with Armenia in 1993 in response to Armenian occupation in Nagorno-Karabakh of Azerbaijan.
