Turkish FM: “Trilateral statement on Karabakh has positive results in terms of Azerbaijan-Turkey, Armenia-Turkey relations”
- 03 December 2020
“We call on the other members of OSCE Minsk group, especially co-chairs refrain politically motivated actions,” said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in his speech at the 27th meeting of OSCE Ministerial Council.
"Today we witness a number of conflicts across the OSCE region. The situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is one of them. Turkey has always been on the side of international law and legitimacy. As a member of the Minsk Group, we are committed to supporting all efforts to find a lasting settlement to this conflict. We always advocate that such a settlement should be based on international law, relevant UN Security Council resolutions, and OSCE principles. It should be based on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Now with the recent agreement between Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Russia, there is a real chance for peace after three decades. This has certainly positive implications on regional stability, as well as Azerbaijani-Turkish and Armenian-Turkish relations. We call on the other members of Minsk Group, and in particularly co-chairs to refrain from politically motivated actions that may undermine the negotiated settlement, “ Turkish FM emphasized.
