“We also encourage Russia to sign an agreement on the status of peacekeeping forces in Karabakh,” said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu while responding to the questions of journalists, APA reports.
He said that no complaints had been received from Azerbaijan in this regard: “The main issue is Russia's role in controlling movement through the Lachin corridor. Permission should be obtained from Azerbaijan for this. Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan. If any status quo is determined tomorrow, it will again be within the borders of Azerbaijan. Therefore, it should not do those without permission from Azerbaijan.”
“You are here as peacekeepers, you are not responsible for deciding who will come and go,” we said.
Turkish FM said that there is no problem regarding the corridor to be opened from Nakhchivan. He stressed that it was confirmed in Russia-Azerbaijan-Armenia trilateral meeting.
