No: 154, 16 July 2020, Press Release Regarding The Statement Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs Of Armenia On 15 July 2020

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 16.07.2020

We observe that Armenia now tries to resort to a hypocritical smear campaign against Turkey in an effort to cover up its aggressive actions against Azerbaijan.

This two-faced attitude of Armenia, which has been illegally occupying Azerbaijani territory for many years, clearly reveals who is the real obstacle to the establishment of lasting peace and stability in the South Caucasus.

Conducting foreign policy with such out of context accusations and slanders will benefit neither the region nor Armenia.

This approach is the manifestation of a mentality which constructs its identity by solely deriving enmity based on a one-sided interpretation of history and which tries to legitimize its own aggression in contravention of international law. This defective mentality that fuels aggressive nationalism is deplorable, but not surprising for us.

Armenian authorities need to come to their senses and comprehend, as soon as possible, that they should be part of the solutions, not problems, in the South Caucasus.
