Writing to new president, Gul calls for normalization of relations with Armenia

President Abdullah Gul sent yesterday a message of congratulations to the victor of this week's presidential election in Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, calling for the normalization of relations between the two countries. Stressing that by living side by side for hundreds of years, Turks and Armenians have shown that they could achieve peaceful coexistence, Gul wrote, �I believe that in your new office you will make great contributions to the normalization process of our relations and truly hope that our collective efforts constitute an atmosphere based on mutual trust, respect and cooperation, one which will be conducive to peace and prosperity in our region."
