This decision will facilitate the provision of aid to the victims of the earthquakes that took place on February 6 and left over 40,000 dead in Türkiye and Syria.
"We have discussed the steps that could lead to the normalization of our diplomatic relations," said Mevlüt Cavusoglu, the Turkish Foreign Minister, during a press conference in Ankara.
"Armenia sent us 100 tons of humanitarian assistance and anticipated its intention to provide additional aid... Armenia behaves like a brother country by reaching out at a time of difficulty," he added.
Previously, Turks, Armenians, and Azerbaijanis have been at odds over the Nagorno-Karabakh, which is a landlocked region in the South Caucasus.
Their common border "has been closed since 1993, in the wake of the war between Armenia and ethnically Turkic Azerbaijan over the Armenian-populated Nagorny Karabakh region," the Institute for War & Peace Reporting recalled.
"Through its three decades of independence, Armenia's foreign policy has been a clear priority," it added, pointing out that this foreign policy position has implied a confrontation between Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Türkiye.
Local authorities in Türkiye and Syria updated on Monday, a week after the earthquakes, the death toll, which, in total and preliminarily, still amounts to more than 36,000 between both nations. pic.twitter.com/EWRqxTQFjg
