Even blockading Armenian border Turkey is not an enemy for Armenia

Abdullah Gul claim Turkey is no enemy for Armenia. The statement sounds friendly, but one fact need to be taken into consideration – Turkey is blockading the border with Armenia and along with Turkish Azerbaijan realize a double size blockade of Armenia. Beside it is worth to mention numerous huge regional projects which do not include Armenia such as Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzrum gas pipeline and hundreds of other projects.

The friendly message from Turkish president is much likely just an effort to reply tactfully to the invitation of Armenian president Serze Sargsyan to come to Armenia in September to watch together the football match between Armenia and Turkey, as well as position of Armenia to start diplomatic relations with Turkey without preconditions. So it is much likely that the message is just a diplomatic etiquette than a real intention to initiate any positive steps in Turkish-Armenian relations.
