“For permanent peace and stability in the South Caucasus, the comprehensive peace agreement proposed by Azerbaijan should be signed between Baku and Yerevan as soon as possible. We support this process,” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a meeting with the Turkish community at the Consulate General of Turkiye in Los Angeles, US.

“Armenia needs peace and this cooperation in the region,” the minister stressed. Cavusoglu noted that Turkiye has appointed a special representative to normalize relations with Armenia. “However, due to the pressure on Armenia, they have not yet been able to take bold steps.”

“Armenia should be encouraged. Maybe their number is small, but unfortunately, they are a group with a loud voice in America; the Armenian groups are against normalizing relations with Turkiye. They have no contribution to Armenia, and they act with hatred.
