For the first time in history Turkish MP speaks of Armenian Genocide recognition

By taking a dignified, principled, just and fair approach to the current situation, Turkey can gain friendly and profitable relations with its Armenian neighbors, with Russia, and with Europe and the West in general.

Trade with Armenia alone will more than recover any debts paid. But far beyond this will be the priceless promise of peace between neighbors.
