YEREVAN (Armenpress)–The European Parliament on Tuesday called on Turkey to open its border with Armenia.
The calls for an end to the more than a decade long embargo came in the European Parliament’s latest resolution on Turkish Progress toward EU membership. The resolution passed overwhelmingly with a vote of 53 to 4 and 4 abstentions.
But according to Turkish NTV, unlike the previous resolutions, this one makes no mention of the 1915 Armenian genocide.
The European Parliament’s resolution only calls on Ankara to end Armenia’s economic blockade, to open border and begin a dialogue with the government in Yerevan for search of reconciliation over the past.
The resolution tells the European Commission to help both sides ease the process of reconciliation.
