Turkey will work to normalize ties with Armenia and start charter flights to its capital city of Yerevan, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Monday, according to state-run TRT TV.
''We will mutually appoint envoys as part of normalization steps with Armenia,'' Cavusoglu said during a speech in parliament, adding that Ankara will coordinate its steps with Azerbaijan. ''We will start charter flights to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia''.
Turkey’s surprise overture is in line with a request by President Joe Biden, who urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during an October meeting in Rome to open the country’s border with landlocked Armenia, a senior Turkish official previously told Bloomberg.
