This just in:

 

"YEREVAN, Armenia – Armenia and Turkey agreed Monday to final talks aimed at establishing diplomatic relations and resolving a seemingly intractable rift that dates to the massacres of Armenians under Ottoman rule nearly 100 years ago.

Both sides said in a joint statement they expected the talks to take six weeks and to end with an agreement setting up and developing ties.

Armenian President Serge Sarkisian, however, has indicated the long-running dispute over the World War I-era killings of Armenians would not be a deal-breaker between the two neighbors..."

 

I was very excited to read this news and I feel this is a step in the right direction. I´m curious how the Turkish members feel about it.

Armenians better recognize the Turkish and Azeri genocides they carried out and then get out of Karabagh which they are illegally occupying. Unless they take these steps, I don`t see anything coming out of it, except the American support for the akp dogs.

I believe it is right step in the right direction..

We have not solved this problem many many  years ago because of our primitive nationalism..

We can not keep going with the current status qou in..

Enough is enough..

But the racist nationalism has no place to advance any further and democracy is coming fully..

It is unstoppable.

Hopefully in 10 years time we will see a much better Turkey.

I wrote down my opinion in the EU thread. I am so happy to see Turkey wants reforms and new relationships with other countries. It was time to begin. Good luck!

Ultranationalist must not carry the day in Turkey and Armenia

.

There is a strange similarity in the knee-jerk reactions of parties and quarters in Turkey and Armenia (as well as hard-line members of the Armenian diaspora) against the efforts at rapprochement between Ankara and Yerevan.

 

Ultra-nationalists on both sides see a “sell-out” in the protocols announced recently by the two countries ...

 

The “genocide” and the “Karabakh” issues are, not surprisingly, at the heart of the heated arguments ..

They accuse Prime Minister Erdogan himself of reneging on his remarks to the Azeri legislature in Baku ...

 

Oddly and ironically, Armenian ultra-nationalists, starting with the Dashnak Party, are also claiming a “Karabakh sell-out” by maintaining exactly the opposite of what their Turkish counterparts are saying...

 

This odd dichotomy – which indicates both nations carry similar masochistic tendencies –...

 

The same is true about the “genocide” issue. Ultra-nationalists on the Turkish side maintain ...

 

Again the reverse mirror image of this situation on the Armenian side is that ultra-nationalists are claiming just the opposite, ...

I dont think the gender was the issue  about what I said..

What I was saying was an ultra nationalist in Turkey is not that different than another ultra nationalist in Armenia or the once you find  in the UK (BNP supporter for example)
