France, Russia, and the United States have been inactive for 30 years in resolving the situation around Nagorno-Karabakh, so they have no right to participate in the conflict resolution, the Turkish leader believes.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded to a statement by the presidents of Russia, the United States, and France calling for negotiations on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Reuters reported Thursday, October 1.
“Given that the U.S., Russia, and France have been neglecting the problem for almost 30 years, it is unacceptable that they are involved in the search for a ceasefire,” Erdogan said.
The Turkish leader also demanded that Armenia withdraw its troops immediately. In his opinion, only after that will peace come to the region.
It should be noted that the statement by the United States, Russia, and France was made during Erdogan’s speech. In his speech, the presidents demanded an immediate ceasefire between Azerbaijani and ethnic Armenian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh and the resumption of negotiations.
