Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced that Turkey and Armenia will soon appoint special envoys to normalize relations.
“To improve relations between Turkey and Armenia, charter flights will be opened,” Cavusoglu said addressing the parliament.
Armenian officials have not yet commented on Cavusoglu’s statements.
Relations between Armenia and Turkey are complicated by the issue of recognizing the Armenian Genocide, Armenia’s refusal to ratify the Kars Treaty and Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan in the Karabakh conflict. The border between the two neighboring states is closed, its length is 311 km.
