Give and Take?

So far in terms of Armenian relations with Turkey, Armenia has given 1.5 million lives and Turkey has taken control of land that legally belong to us.

This process of having normal relations with Turkey will only produce results when Turkey starts to give something that Armenia can take back.

If you ask me I would say that the process we are engaging with Turkey is needed, but not if it means that we we lay on our backs and let Turkey sniff us.

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Recent efforts to normalize relations between Turkey and neighboring Armenia are a step in the right direction, but the process has failed to produce any results other than a softening in the political rhetoric, diplomats and foreign policy analysts have indicated, a Turkish diplomat said.

"The Armenian side hasn't taken a step back. There is only a change in the rhetoric," said retired Ambassador Murat Bilhan. "Armenia should be aware that this is a give-and-take process, but it does not seem to be ready to give anything," he said, the Anatolia news agency reported.
