Turkey's President Abdullah Gul welcomed the
political courage of his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsyan.
"I was happy to visit Armenia, because we can't be enemies forever,"
he said in an interview with France24. "However, the Armenian Diaspora
impedes normalization of relations between the two states," he added,
independent French journalist Jean Eckian told PanARMENIAN.Net.
Turkey's President called on all interested parties to help
Turkish-Armenian reconciliation. "I am optimistic about the issue and
I call for good sense and assistance in normalization of relations
between our states," Gul said.
