Armenia's president has accused Turkey of "destroying" a bid to normalize relations between the historic enemies.

The neighboring countries are locked in a bitter dispute over the mass killings of up to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks around the time of World War I.

Serge Sarkisian told Cypriot legislators in a speech Monday that Turkey's "contradictory posture, inconsistent statements and groundless manipulation of the process" scuppered an Oct. 2009 deal to reopen shared borders.

Armenia wants the killings recognized as genocide. Turkey says the toll has been inflated and those killed were victims of civil war and unrest.

Turkey also wants Armenian troops withdrawn from Nagorno-Karabakh, an Armenian-occupied enclave in Azerbaijan.
