EU welcomes Turkey-Armenia protocol

EU Commission said on Tuesday that it was attaching high importance to commitments made between Turkey and Armenia to improve and normalize bilateral ties.

The EU External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner said that it was pleasing that Turkey and Armenia agreed to start internal political consultations.

She urged that rapid steps should be taken between Turkey and Armenia to establish normal diplomatic ties, and said that this was important for stability in the region.

On Monday, Turkey and Armenia agreed to start their internal political consultations on the establishment of diplomatic ties and development of bilateral relations. A joint statement issued by Turkey, Armenia, and Switzerland said internal political consultations over two protocols, which had been agreed on under Swiss mediation, would be completed within six weeks which would be followed by ratification at Turkish and Armenian parliaments.
