Garo Paylan raises the issue of Armenian-Turkish border at Turkish Parliament

The Turkish Parliament’s Commission on Planning and Budget has discussed the issue of increasing the number of large trade centers, Ermenihaber.am reports.

Addressing the Commission, ethnic Armenian MP Garo Paylan referred to the closed border between Armenia and Turkey, noting that had the border been open, Armenia would do most of its trade with Turkey.

According to the Turkish Sondakika website, Paylan said: “The border with Armenia has been closed for 23 years now. Had the border been open, Armenia would do three/fourth of its trade with Turkey. People would come here, relations would develop.”

Paylan added that “this could help solve the Karabakh issue as well. The development of relations would benefit both parties.”
