Yerevan should drop territorial claims against neighbors to restore relations with Ankara - Turkish FM

BAKU. Dec 20 (Interfax) - Relations between Ankara and Yerevan can be restored only after Armenian troops leave occupied Azerbaijani territories, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a press conference in Baku on Wednesday.

"As for restoring relations with Yerevan, Armenia will have to, for starters, pull troops out of Azerbaijani lands," Cavusoglu said.

Yerevan should revise its attitude towards its neighbors, drop territorial claims, and show respect for Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, he said.
