Armenia's Foreign Minister Eduard Nalbandyan is set to pay a visit to Turkey to deliver the message of Armenian head of state Serj Sarkisyan at Recep Tayyip Erdogan's presidential inauguration.

According to Turkey's daily Star newspaper, it will be his first visit to Turkey since coming to watch a World Cup qualifying match between the two nations as well as an economic conference in 2008.

It is not yet clear who he will be meeting during his stay, but there are believed to be no plans for him to meet Turkish Foreign Minister-turned-Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

However, he is expected to deliver Sarkisyan's congratulations to Erdogan as well as extend an invitation to Erdogan to visit Armenia for its own presidential inauguration ceremony on April 24 of next year.

Nalbandyan's visit is seen as a sign of an unconditional normalization process between Turkey and Armenia, who have been at odds over Armenia's occupation of Turkey's ally and fellow Turkic state Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh region.
