Turkey and Armenia to hold second round of talks in Vienna

Turkey and Armenia will hold a second round of talks to normalize ties after decades of animosity, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Thursday, according to Daily Sabah.

Special envoys from the two countries will meet on Feb. 24 in Vienna, the ministry said in a statement.

Last month, Turkey and Armenia held what both hailed as “positive and constructive” talks in Moscow, the first in more than a decade, raising hopes that diplomatic relations can be established and their land border – shut since 1993 – reopened.

As part of the normalization process, Turkey and Armenia on Wednesday restarted commercial charter flights between Istanbul and Yerevan after two years.

The two countries have had no diplomatic or commercial ties since the 1990s. The talks last month were the first attempt to restore links since a 2009 peace accord that was never ratified.

Ankara has said it wants the normalization talks to be held either in Turkey or Armenia after the first round.
