“If relations between Turkey and Armenia are restored, Armenia will have to make concessions as a loser.”
Yuri Mavashev, a Russian orientalist and Turkologist, told the Russian bureau of Report while commenting on the possibility of normalization of relations between Turkey and Armenia.
“The reality of politics is that there are winners and losers,” he said. Personally, I do not imagine that Turkey can withdraw from a position that coincides with the position of Azerbaijan. Although it is still difficult to talk about the establishment of relations, the Turkish side is trying to improve relations with Armenia. However, Armenia, not Turkey and Azerbaijan, needs a peace agreement and an end to all problems. Baku has already reached this point, “the expert said, noting that there are few facts indicating that relations between Ankara and Yerevan have returned to normal.” We are still talking about more hopes. The resumption of flights is a positive thing, but it does not replace the political solution to existing problems.
It should be noted that there were rumors that the Turkish and Armenian governments could appoint a special envoy to regulate relations, and charter flights from Turkey to Armenia.
