Armenia-Turkey border could partially open by ‘tourist season,’ says Mirzoyan

  • Armenia and Turkey aim to open their border to third-country citizens and diplomatic passport holders before the start of this year’s tourist season, according to Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan.
  • The European Union civilian mission in Armenia will start its border monitoring work next week, with Germany announcing that German police officers will also take part.
  • The Armenian search and rescue team deployed to areas of southern Turkey devastated by last week’s earthquake have returned to Yerevan. A separate team deployed to Syria returned earlier this week.
