"....to forgive divine" Pt II

In a fairly extraordinary development, Armenian foreign minister Edward Nalbandian reckons "There are no substantial obstacles to the normalization of Turkish-Armenian relations".

Unexpectedly, Turkey was an early recogniser of free Armenia in '91, but it all went sour in '93 over the Artsakh war. Apparently Turkey still thinks it shocking that Armenia would like an admission of the Turkish genocides against it, with this something of a problem for Yerevan, and a huge one for the diaspora. My sympathies lie with Armenia on these issues, but a full diplomatic and trading relationship with Turkey would be good for all concerned.

I suspect this is not the Edward Nalbandian that shows up on a wiki search - a lyrical inspiration to Frank Zappa, apparently.

(Pt I here).
