Armenia scraps deal with Turkey designed to normalize relations

Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

Armenia has scrapped a peace agreement it signed with Turkey in 2009 in an attempt to normalize relations between the two countries, the Armenian president’s press service said on March 1. The deal needed parliament­ary approval in both countries but was never ratified and the Armenian and Turkish government­s have since accused each other of trying to change the deal. “As a result of discussion­s, President [Serzh] Sarksyan signed a decree and the national security council approved a procedure of annulling protocols which were signed on October 10, 2009,” the press service said in a statement.
