Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan have agreed to establish a joint working group to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The decision was made during a telephone conversation, CNN Turk reports.
The media outlet notes that the proposal to establish a working group came from the President of Turkey. Putin, in turn, gave a "warm" response.
"Let's solve the Karabakh problem together at one table where we will establish it," Erdogan said.
According to sources, the talks may return to a bilateral format in the coming days. The source also stressed that Azerbaijan should cease active offensive actions in Karabakh and sit down at the negotiating table.
As we reported earlier, the escalation in the region began on September 27, when the Azerbaijani side fired at settlements, as well as military units in Karabakh.
Then the motorized rifle and tank units of the Azerbaijani army launched an offensive in the northern, southern, and southeastern directions. The Armenian government has declared martial law in the country.
