Armenia’s President says Turkish regime uses hostile language against Armenia

The President of Armenia Armen Sarkissian has asserted that the Turkish regime uses a hostile language in addressing Armenia, saying that such language has nothing to do with international relations and proves the Turkish regime’s intention to continue what it has done 105 years ago.
His remarks were made in response to a question raised by the Syrian al-Azmineh magazine on the Turkish regime’s statements on the conflict between Armenian and Azerbaijan over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding
districts.

The Armenian president made it clear that the Treaty of Sèvres signed in 1920 was designed to liquidate the effects of the Armenian genocide.

According to the article 89 of the treaty, Turkey and Armenia as well as the other High Contracting Parties agree to submit to the arbitration of the President of the United States of America the question of the frontier to be fixed between Turkey and Armenia in the vilayets of Erzerum, Trebizond, Van and Bitlis, and to accept his decision thereupon, as well as any stipulations he may prescribe as to access for Armenia to the sea, and as to the demilitarisation of any portion of Turkish territory adjacent to the said frontier.
