In this historic period defined by a policy of rapprochement between Yerevan and Ankara, when mostly the Armenian Diaspora, for mutually explainable reasons, adopted contrary positions, we found ourselves facing extremes, which served merely to obscure the truths.
However, one positive aspect was forgotten, which, in my opinion, is extremely honorable for the Armenian people as a whole: this international initiative achieved new heights in the present troubled period.
Despite our prolonged indifference, which undoubtedly had occasioned the dissatisfaction of us all, we welcomed with hidden satisfaction a curiosity present in us all with regard to the evolution of current political events and politics in general.
For the most part, the Diasporan-Armenian press played an undeniable role in the aforementioned positive main point. With its editorials, analyses, international political reviews and even detailed coverage of major and minor political news, this press of ours kept the interest of the reading public permanently peaked. Thus, we gained a better understanding of what we read, what we knew, and what we supposed, predicted and anticipated.
Undoubtedly we all became informed that protocols, indispensable negotiations and, finally, mutual parliamentary approvals for the purpose of speedy execution are necessary in order for diplomatic relations to be reestablished between Turkey and Armenia.
