Baku, January 27, AZERTAC

With the beginning of normalization efforts between Turkiye and Armenia, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on Thursday welcomed Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan's announcement saying his country will "most likely" attend the Antalya Diplomacy Forum (ADF) in March this year, according to Anadolu Agency.

Speaking at a joint press conference with his Central African Republic counterpart Sylvie Baipo-Temon, Cavusoglu said Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan and Armenia's Special Envoy to Turkiye Ruben Rubinyan are expected to attend the annual forum.

He noted that the normalization process with Armenia is continuing with "confidence-building steps," referring to the first round of negotiations held in Moscow with special envoys from both countries.

He also mentioned that diplomats from the two countries are frequently in contact.

Cavusoglu welcomed Pashinyan's earlier statement on participation at the ADF, as he also confirmed Azerbaijan's participation.

"Both Azerbaijan and Armenia will share their thoughts at the forum. Thus, becoming a part of their confidence-building steps," he said.
