The protocol was signed by the two sides with the dificult efforts of USAs Hillary Clinton and Switzerland's Calmy Rey. It is not an accord and the opening of the Turkish Armenian border has no pr3 condidions. Just a few days ago Armenians passed it from ther congress and kept thir side of the bargain. Turkey on the other side has not done that. PM erdoga said that they will only bring it to TBMM (parliament) if Armenia pulls out all of its troops from Ngornogh Karabakh - which is against the protocol. So the fact is Turkey is not obeying the protocol that she signed and there is no hope in sight that Turkey will open the border. Just a few days ago Mr. Putin also told Mr. Erdogan about it remember? I tell you Hodri Meyda, keep your promise and open th eborder immediately respecting the protocol that you signed so that we see that Turkish signatur is worth more that the paper it is written.
