Possible Turkish border reopening causes angst in Armenia’s border villages

In Margara in Armenia’s Armavir region, the morning starts with the sound of the Islamic call to prayer. The village lies less than a kilometer away from Turkey, with the village of Alican clearly visible on the other side of the border. As efforts to normalize relations between Armenia and Turkey continue, the prospect of opening the border, which has been closed since the early 1990s, has become a heated topic of discussion in the village. CivilNet’s team went to Margara to find out more.
