Turkey’s Vice President reacts to Pelosi’s remarks on Armenia

Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay said on Monday that U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s “biased” statements regarding the clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan “sabotage diplomacy efforts” and were simply unacceptable.

These statements follow Pelosi’s visit to Armenia this past weekend, in an unprecedented show of U.S. support for the country, which has been locked into a conflict with its neighbour, Azerbaijan over the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh spanning over three decades.

On Twitter, Oktay also called on Washington to clarify whether Pelosi’s statements reflect the official U.S. position.
