Russia has called on Turkey to work to end the bloody conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karbakh region. Turkey has sided with Azerbaijan in the ongoing conflict. In this context, the call was made by Russia on Tuesday. Qatar-based Al Jazeera reported.
The bloody conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia continues for the third consecutive day. Soldiers from both countries continued fighting on Tuesday, which began on Sunday. Meanwhile, at least 95 people including women and children have died. The United Nations has called for a ceasefire from both sides. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that Armenia will have to leave Azerbaijan. On the other hand, Armenia has called on the international community to keep Turkey away from the conflict.
On Monday, a spokesman for the Russian President’s office, Dmitry Peskov, said: “We urge all sides, especially the Allies, to do everything politically and diplomatically to find a peaceful solution to the conflict.”
He said that in such a situation, any kind of support and military action to any party would definitely add fuel to the fire.
Armenia has accused a close ally of Turkey, Azerbaijan, of sending them on hire for the conflict. Ankara has denied the allegations.
There are conflicting relations between Turkey and Armenia. Russia is a member of a military alliance of countries of the former Soviet Union. That alliance includes Armenia and the country has a Russian military base. However, Moscow supplies arms to both Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Peskov said that Russia was in close contact with the three countries.
