Erdoğan Says He's Received Pashinyan's Offer to Meet
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan today announced that he has received Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan’s offer to meet.
The proposal, according to the Azerbaijani APA news agency, was relayed to Erdoğan by Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili.
The APA reports that Erdoğan announced receiving the offer at a press conference prior to his visit to New York, where the Turkish President will attend the next session of the UN General Assembly.
Erdoğan noted that if Pashinyan wants to meet him, Armenia must take positive steps.
"The Prime Minister of Georgia handed me the offer to have a meeting with the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. But for that, Armenia must take positive steps. "If that meeting takes place, Turkey will also establish diplomatic relations," Erdoğan is reported to have said.
Erdoğan said he hoped that the opening of the so-called “Zangezur Corridor" would contribute to the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations.
