ANKARA — Turkey will send troops to Armenia on Oct. 11 in compliance with an international treaty, the Hurriyet Daily News reports quoting the Turkish General Staff as stating.
In a statement posted on its official website, the Turkish General Staff said that the Turkish Armed Forces’ inspection team would be sent to Armenia for three days.
“As part of the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty, the CFE inspection will be held in Armenia under the guidance of Turkey between October 11 and 14, 2015. A guest inspector from Slovakia will also attend the course of Turkey’s inspection,” the statement said.
The statement also added that the Turkish team would return to Turkey on October 14 after carrying out the inspection.
Turkey and Armenia do not have diplomatic relations, while Ankara closed its border with Yerevan in 1993 due to the latter’s war with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
Armenian Armed Forces regularly carry out inspection on the territory of the Republic of Turkey.
