BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – Ankara said that the Turkish Defense Minister, Hulusi Akar, stressed during a telephone conversation he had today with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Shoigu, “the necessity of Armenia’s withdrawal from the occupied Azerbaijani lands.”

The Turkish Ministry of Defense stated, in a statement, that Akar called on Monday with Shoigu, and during the call, “views were exchanged on Armenia’s attacks on Azerbaijan.”

According to the statement, Akar stressed that Armenia, which he claimed “launched an attack on the civilian population and violated the ceasefire regime, must stop its attacks and withdraw from the occupied territories.”

Akar pointed out that “Azerbaijan cannot wait another 30 years,” stressing Turkey’s support for Azerbaijan in its move to “regain control of its lands.”

On September 27, armed clashes erupted on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the Karabakh region and adjacent areas, in the most dangerous escalation between the two parties in more than 20 years, amid mutual accusations of starting hostilities and bringing in foreign militants.

Turkey is considered a major ally of Azerbaijan, which is involved in the clashes against Armenian forces.

On October 10, Azerbaijan and Armenia reached an agreement at the level of foreign ministers by means of Russia to declare a ceasefire for humanitarian purposes, but later the two sides exchanged accusations of violating it.

Artsakh is in the same situation as Crimea : huge Armenian majority. Artsakh has already reclaimed legitimate independence. Russia should recognise Artsakh and include it in CSTO.

mon ami, not quite so clear. While the area of the old oblast is definitely majority Armenian settled – for millenia – the Armenians had to connect that area to Armenia proper – so they claimed the area. I have no idea whether that area was Armenian majority settled or not. Anyway. The Armenians ethnically cleansed that area of non Armenians 30 years ago. p.s. Yes. The area named Artsakh Republic since 2017 is independent. Autonomous regions (Russian Автономная область, Awtonomnaja oblast ‘, abbreviated AO) offered smaller peoples limited cultural autonomy within the Union Republics of the USSR. In theory,… Read more »

The Azeri and Turks must stop their brazen lies and genocidal error attacks. p.s.  I do not see why Wilson’s 14 points, that are about the self determination of the nations, do not apply to the Armenians in the autonomous Nagorno-Karabakh Oblast that is the named Artsakh Republic since 2017. Autonomous regions (Russian Автономная область, Awtonomnaja oblast ‘, abbreviated AO) offered smaller peoples limited cultural autonomy within the Union Republics of the USSR. In theory, the autonomous regions were states. After the declaration of independence of the two Soviet republics of Armenia and Azerbaijan from the Soviet Union, the administration of… Read more »
