Armenian leader to make landmark trip to Turkey

YEREVAN, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Armenian President Serzh Sarksyan said on Monday he would make a landmark trip to Turkey to attend a football match this week, with the neighbours bidding for rapprochement after a century of hostility.

"Providing nothing extraordinary happens in these two days, I will go to Bursa and support my favourite team," he told reporters on departure from Yerevan for talks in Moscow. "I see no serious basis not to accept this invitation." (Reporting by Hasmik Mkrtchyan; writing by Matt Robinson; editing by Michael Stott)
