Armenia-Turkey protocols severely criticized at home

Members of the opposition Nationalist Movement Party and Republican People’s Party reacted very negatively to the government’s move to restore diplomatic relations with Armenia. Republican People’s Party vice president and retired ambassador Onur Öymen, for example, said Armenia has not sufficiently changed its policy nor implemented the necessary pre-conditions to allow such reconciliation. 

Without parliamentary ratification, Turkey cannot implement the two protocols even if the government signs them.
