Turkey rebuffs Armenian prosecutor's border remarks

Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesman Levent Gumrukcu said on Friday that Turkey regretted the Armenian Chief prosecutor's remarks on the Turkish-Armenian border.

Armenian Chief Prosecutor Aghvan Hovsepyan stated during the Pan-Armenian Lawyers Congress on July 5 and 6 that the Turkish-Armenian border wasn't determined legally and the lost Armenian territories, as he claimed, must be returned to Armenia.

Gumrukcu stressed that the remarks of an official post like the Chief Prosecutor's reflected the problematic mentality prevailing in Armenia on Turkish-Armenian relations and its neighbour Turkey's territorial integrity.

He argued that the statement also contradicted the obligations of Armenia to the international organizations with which it is affiliated such as the United Nations (UN) and Organization for Security and Coordination in Europe (OSCE).

"It must be known that nobody can dare to claim territory from Turkey," he urged.
