Typical BS of Dandik ....falsifying historical facts ....absolutely typical for you Dandik ....
Ever heard of the "Treaty of Kars" .... the borders are clear defined, Armenians have NO RIGHT what-so-ever on Turkish territory!
(Anyway why should they? They lost each war they started with the Turks.)
Again caught wrong, Dandik boy?
Cheerres,

keep this as a secret;
Kars treaty, unless ratified periodically is nul and void.
AZ and Georgia did but Armenia declined.

Well can’t find anything relating to the Treaty of Kars, and the claim it has to be periodically renewed ….never heard something like that ….must be a joke by you …..but let me reply you with a a quote & different wikipedia link:

"Armenia has officially stated that it has always recognised the current border with Turkey and, in the words of its Foreign Minister Vardan Oskanyan, "Armenia has never made a problem of validity of the Treaty of Kars, as Armenia remains loyal to all agreements inherited from the Soviet Union."

detailed info under sub-title: Border dispute

However you want to see it, it is a valid agreement!

Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the governments of Turkey, Georgia, and Azerbaijan have accepted the Kars treaty. But in contrast with this the Armenian position is different. As a proof of that can serve the announcements of Armenian Government officials as well as the absence of any such ratifications or decisions. The Armenian MP Levon Mkrtchyan from ARFD said the issue of recognizing or not recognizing the Kars Treaty is not on Armenia's foreign political agenda in Yerevan on February 3, 2005. He notes that the treaty was signed with gross violations of the international law as it was imposed by the Turkish-Russian Moscow Treaty, which stipulated, that all the South Caucasian republics should later sign similar separate treaties with Turkey. Similarly Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanyan had argued Armenia accepts the Kars Treaty. However Armenian Declaration of Independence and Armenian Constitution call Turkey's eastern provinces Western Armenia. Armenia does not clearly recognize Turkey's national borders which defined in the Kars Treaty.[5] Additionally, Oskanian noted that Turkey itself does not put a number of articles of the treaty into practice. For instance, the treaty called for Turkey to open a consulate in each of the three Transcaucasian republics. Due to tension between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, Turkey has closed the land border with Armenia and severed diplomatic ties with it, thus allegedly violating this article. Oskanyan states that by this action, Turkey is putting the validity of the treaty into doubt.[11]

a.) putting something in doubt does not mean in is not valid and the view that it is 'put in doubt' is the opinion of Armenia not Turkey.....
b.) just because Armeniana calls it Western Armenia it does not mean it is Armenian territory nor that Armenia has any rights over it (How would it be if Turkey would start calling Armenia North-Eastern Ottoman territories??)
c.) The Armenian foreign minister clearly stated they have in the past and will and have the obligation to respect all Ussr agreements
d.) Armenia is free to try to get it back
