Turkey reaffirms support to Baku’s destructive stance on Karabakh issue

Turkey’s objective stance on Nagorno Karabakh problem implies support to Baku’s steps aiming to foil the negotiation process and change OSCE Minsk Group format, rather than the conflict settlement, Armenian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

“Ankara also criticizes Ireland due to its geographical location,” Tigran Balayan said, commenting on his Turkish counterpart’s statement, stressing the need for a change in OSCE Minsk Group format due to the co-chair countries’ subjective position.

“Turkey doesn’t miss any opportunity to prove to the international community that its involvement in Karabakh issue undermines the process,” the spokesman said.
