Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu stated that his country will participate in the control over the peace-making in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, as RIA News reports.
“Yesterday, the agreement was signed on the truce. Currently, the discussion takes place: how it should be observed and controlled. The process of control over the truce will be held jointly and we will continue to stay with Azerbaijan,” Çavuşoğlu said.
The same statement was made by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. He assured that not only Russian but the Turkish peacekeepers will be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the president of Azerbaijan, paragraph 5 of the agreement on truce provides that the peacekeeping center on control over the ceasefire will be created with the participation of Russia and Turkey to control the fulfillment of the agreements reached by the sides.
In its turn, Russia denies the participation of Turkey in the peacekeeping process. Spokesperson of the Russian President Dmitriy Peskov stated that the leaders of Russia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan did not agree on the presence of the Turkish peacekeepers in the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
“It is not even mentioned in the text of the statement; three sides did not agree on the presence of the Turkish soldiers in Karabakh,” he said.
Armenia also refutes this situation. Spokesperson of Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan, Mane Gevorkyan reported that the statement of the Azerbaijani president that the Turkish military will be present in the composition of the peacekeeping Center in Nagorno-Karabakh does not correspondent the reality.
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev agreed to cease the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.
