Turkish PM says may meet Armenian president

"There are no obstacles that would hinder a meeting with Sargsyan, we may meet," Erdogan told a press briefing before departing for Davos to participate in the World Economic Forum.

"The Armenian diaspora is working and we see very clearly that the diaspora is up to certain things. But we also see that the current administration in Armenia does not share these. We have never favored steps that would cast a shadow on peace and we will not," Erdogan said in response to a question.

Erdogan said he had no planned tete-a-tete meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres but he said he would come together with Peres at a discussion panel on peace in the Middle East.

The Turkish premier also said he would meet a number world leaders including Russian, Kazakh, Azerbaijani, Colombian presidents as well as Albanian, Dutch, Polish prime ministers.
