“Turkish authorities are seeking escalation on different borders, including our border,” Mr Shakaryants said.
According to him, Armenia and Iran will intensify military and security cooperation while they are seeking closer ties.
As to whether the incident with the downed Russian warplane could affect Turkish-Russian relations, Mr Shakaryants said that the nuclear-power plant construction project will first of all be suspended.
“The military ties have been severed, Russians will not warn of their intention to bomb, while NATO will not intercede for Turkey,” he said.
Commenting on a bill calling for Turkey’s accountability for denying the Armenian Genocide, Mr Shakaryants said that the document passing from the Lower Chamber to the Upper Chamber and, finally to President Vladimir Putin for signing will take much time.
It could sober up Azerbaijan as Russia is well aware of which side is escalating the situation. Moreover. Azerbaijan’s reaction to the issue of the Armenian Genocide is much harsher than Turkey’s.
