"Great Britain as a country having friendly relations with Turkey would like Turkey and EU to have perfect relations with other EU countries and Armenia. It is a key priority for. One of the EU's membership conditions to Turkey is good relations with the neighbor-states," the Ambassador said. She said Britain will support any process that may normalize the relations of Armenia and Turkey.
