Decision 2013: Turkish President congratulates Sargsyan on election win

February 21, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Turkish President Abdullah Gul has congratulated Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on his victory in the February 18 vote giving him a second five-year mandate.

“According to the information received from the presidency, Gul sent a message of congratulation to Sargsyan,” Anatolia news agency reported, without giving any further detail.

Sargsyan and Gul were key figures in the now-stalled rapprochement process between the estranged neighbors initiated in 2008. The diplomatic protocols signed in October 2009 for the normalization of relations have not been ratified since then, with officials in Yerevan and Ankara accusing each other of torpedoing the process.

Earlier, Sargsyan also received congratulations from other world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin.
