Baku Victoria Dementyeva – APA. “The agreement between Armenia and Turkey to normalise their relations is excellent news,” said Lluís-Maria de Puig, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“This is something that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has long been hoping for, and working towards.

The two governments have accepted that, whatever the difficulties of the past, they must look to the future – on behalf of all their peoples.

The Assembly, a forum where Armenian and Turkish parliamentarians work together as colleagues, stands ready to help in any way it can to advance this process.

I look forward to the ratification of these two protocols by both parliaments, beginning a new – and brighter – chapter in relations between these two Council of Europe member states.”
