Days Two and Three in Armenia-Turkey Rapprochement

Global Political Trends Center (GPoT) organized a workshop in collaboration with the Eurasia Partnership Foundation in Armenia (EPF) with the participation of Turkish and Armenian stakeholders, experts and journalists between the 24th and 28th of March, 2010 in Yerevan.

The workshop was carried out within the framework of the “Days Two and Three in Armenia-Turkey Rapprochement” Project conducted by GPOT and EPF and supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). During the meetings, Turkish and Armenian experts discussed the ratification of the bilateral Protocols and the implementation process in both countries. The experts from both sides also tackled the obstacles to the application of the Protocols and elaborately discussed the joint strategies to effectively support the process. The subject of the impact of the normalization of the Turkish-Armenian relations on the Caucasus region was also handled by both sides during the meetings. Turkish participants of the event joined talk shows aired on TV in Armenia and also met with Vigen Sarkisian, Deputy Head of Administration of President Serj Sarkisian, to discuss the bilateral relations and regional politics.

The second leg of the project was to be carried out by participation of the Armenian opinion molders and experts on their visit to Turkey in the following months.
