"We are in the process of establishing a joint Russian-Turkish Center for Ceasefire Monitoring in Nagorno-Karabakh at the locations identified by Azerbaijan and at the points shown to us. The main purpose of these centers will be to monitor the ceasefire, but if the ceasefire is violated, measures will be taken to prevent it, said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, APA reports.
The minister said that during the 44-day war between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Russia, the United States and France tried to declare a ceasefire three times, but each time it was violated by Armenia.
Cavusoglu expressed hope that Armenia would comply with the latest decision on the ceasefire: “In this case, we will normalize relations with Armenia. We will evaluate the next steps together with Azerbaijan. The opening of the border with Armenia will be extremely beneficial for this country. Because Armenia is isolated within itself.
