Turkey and Armenia are set to sign in Zurich, on October 10, an agreement to establish diplomatic relations.

The information was reported Sunday by the Bulgarian information agency BTA, citing APF and an undisclosed source from the Turkish cabinet.

Two protocols that have already been agreed on will be signed by the Foreign Affairs Ministers of Turkey and Armenia.

The two countries, whose shared historical events are marked by violence and mutual accusations, announced in August they negotiated the establishment of diplomatic relations, opening of the common borders and a schedule with measures to improve their bilateral cooperation.

The protocols, however, can enter into effect, only after their ratification from the Parliaments of the two countries, something that remains quite uncertain, political experts say.
