"Nalbandian’s remarks appear to differ radically from the rhetoric of the Armenian diaspora, which is pushing
for the passage of genocide resolutions in the parliaments of foreign countries."

Armenia wants to maintain good ties with neighboring Turkey and believes resolutions passed in other countries’ parliaments supporting Armenian claims of genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Empire during World War I will not help dialogue between the two countries, Armenia’s foreign minister has reportedly said. ………..

Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian’s answer to the question of “Novosti-Armenia” News Agency

11 November 2008

Question: Mr. Minister, recently several Turkish media published reports Armenia’s policy for international recognition of Armenian Genocide? What would be your reaction?

Answer: Turkish media reports on Armenian officials’ would be declarations are distorted and presented upside down. I have already said and I’d like to repeat that Armenian officials have not spoken and would never speak against the process of International recognition of Armenian Genocide. Moreover, Armenia can not tolerate any expression of Armenian Genocide denial.

RA President: commission of historians on Armenian Genocide needless

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Formation of a commission of historians to study the fact of the Armenian Genocide is absolutely needless, the Armenian President said.   “We want to establish diplomatic relations with Turkey and have open borders,” Serzh Sargsyan said in an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.   “Turkey’s acknowledgement of the Armenian Genocide should not be a precondition for establishment of relations. European countries did not need commissions of historians to develop normal relations,” he underscored.   “We want to restore our relations with Turkey and Azerbaijan. We want to build a link connecting Armenia and Iran. The stronger infrastructure we have the more attractive and secure Armenia will be,” President Sargsyan said.
