Russian President Vladimir Putin has spoken about the possibility of Turkey's participation in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
According to him, in order to resolve the conflict in Karabakh, it is necessary to sit down at the negotiating table and find a consensus and balance of interests on the basis of the proposals of the OSCE Minsk Group.
"At the first stage, it is necessary to stop the hostilities and the death of people, sit down at the negotiating table and find a consensus and balance of interests on the basis of proposals formulated by the Minsk Group co-chairs – Russia, the United States and France – with the participation of other members of this Minsk Group: there are many countries, including Turkey and a number of European states. It can be done," Putin said at the forum Russia Calling on Thursday, October 29.
Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
