Yildirim: Turkey to consider Armenia's call to fix relations
Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim expressed willingness to consider Armenia's will to re-establish diplomatic relations.
Yildirim's remarks came after a question on Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s statement on May 9 that "Armenia is ready to establish diplomatic ties with Turkey without preconditions."
"Let's see first," Yildirim said. "If Armenia gives up its hostile attitude which it has had for several years, its attitude towards Turkey's territorial integrity and borders, if it is giving up all its wrong attitudes... and it wants to open a new page, we will give the response looking at the details relating to this."
"We are going to increase friends, we are going to reduce enemies," he added.
"We do not desire to be hostile with anyone, especially our neighbors." Anadolu Agency cited Turkish Prime Minister as saying.
