AIPRG Executive Board Response to Letter by US Secretary of Defense Gates and US Secretary of State Rice

The border between Armenia and Turkey was unilaterally closed by Turkey in 1993. In recent years, there has been increased pressure—both external and internal—to open the border and normalize bilateral relations. The conference which was held in January 2007 brought together researchers, policymakers, international organizations, and other stakeholders to examine the potential benefits and costs of opening the border and normalizing relations between Armenia and Turkey. The conference aimed at providing policymakers with analysis about ways to maximize potential benefits and mitigate potential costs of border opening. The conference was co-sponsored by USAID, Eurasia Foundation, and the UK Embassy in Armenia.
