Turkey committed to protocols with Armenia, Erdogan says

Turkish premier has said his country remained committed to achieve goals set by two protocols with Armenia to normalize relations.

“As we have earlier stated numerous times, we are loyal to the protocols, their essence and spirit as well as their implementation,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan told a joint press conference with New Zealander counterpart John Key after a their meeting in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

Erdogan was responding to a question over Armenian coalition government’s statement on Thursday that it suspended the ratification process of the protocols.
