No progress as Turkey, Armenia discuss court ruling

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met Thursday his Armenian counterpart Eduard Nalbandian in London where he is attending a conference on Afghanistan.

Davutoglu's meeting with Nalbandian lasted around 15 minutes. The two ministers exchanged viewpoints on the new situation that arose after a recent decision made by the Armenian Constitutional Court on the protocols signed between Turkey and Armenia in 2009.

Nalbandian told Davutoglu that there was "no change" in the character of the process (after the Armenian court's decision).

Today's meeting provided an opportunity for the two ministers to express their views face to face.

While there was no change in the position of the parties, the meeting was beneficial, sources said.

Davutoglu also met with Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov of Azerbaijan on the sidelines of the conference.

During the meeting, Mammadyarov informed Davutoglu on the meeting of Azerbaijani and Armenian leaders in Russia.

Turkey wants Armenia to declare that a recent decision by the Armenian Constitutional Court has not brought any changes to the protocols signed on October 11, 2009.
