ANKARA (Radikal)—Turkish representatives will take part in military and humanitarian training operations organized by NATO which are to be held in September in Armenia.
According to Turkish Radikal, the names of Turkish servicemen have already been added to the list of Alliance soldiers who will come to Armenia to participate in these exercises. In addition, the newspaper says that there are plans to open the Armenian-Turkish border for a limitless passage of servicemen for a time period.
The exercise is expected to involve servicemen from 19 member-states and NATO partners. Azerbaijan has rejected participation in the trainings.
The decision to hold military exercises in Armenia was adopted by NATO member-states, including Turkey. They will be held on from September 11 to 17.
According to diplomatic sources, a temporary opening of the Turkish-Armenian border will ensure the passage of military units for humanitarian purposes, but does not mean that the state border between Turkey and Armenia will be declared open.
