Turkish FM sees Armenia solution in 2009

Speaking to CNN Turk TV channel in Davos, Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan said that he expected the problems between Turkey and Armenia to be solved in 2009.

"Actually, it would not surprise me if a solution was found this year. 2009 can be a milestone in Turkish-Armenian relations as long as both parties maintain their political will till the end," he said.

Upon a question on U.S. special envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell's probable visit to Turkey, Babacan said that he had a phone conversation with Mitchell the other night and currently they were trying to set a date.

"He is on a fast tour. We are trying to determine the date on which he could stop by Turkey or on which we could be available. However, he expressed his desire to visit our country," Babacan said.
