ANKARA — Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has called on Armenia to “refrain from new provocations” several days after Yerevan and Baku traded accusations over an escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh that left at least three people dead.

Speaking at a gathering of Turkish diplomats in Ankara on Monday, Cavusoglu reportedly also reiterated his country’s vision of peace in the South Caucasus region.

“After the end of the war [in Karabakh], Turkey is making efforts to ensure peace in the region. Now we are talking not about Azerbaijan’s occupied territories, displaced people, refugees and a conflict that can start again at any moment, but about regional peace and cooperation. We again call on Armenia to refrain from participating in new provocations [against Azerbaijan in Karabakh],” Cavusoglu said.

On August 6, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, while returning from his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, told journalists that it is important for Armenia to fulfill its Karabakh ceasefire commitments as soon as possible.

Erdogan, according to the Anadolu Agency, also condemned the death of an Azerbaijani soldier in recent clashes along the Karabakh Line of Contact.

“Karabakh is Azerbaijani territory located within the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan naturally does not want any illegal armed elements on its territory” the Turkish president said.

  1. Turkey and Azerbaijan are the puppets of the world. Is Russia really Armenia’s friend. Armenia is in a very difficult position, to say the least. The question is, what is the answer. Can’t look towards the West. Russia is preoccupied with, “other things”.
    What is the answer.

  2. The answer is what I have been saying for a decade now. Global unity of Armenian diaspora, unparalleled level of fund raising from every single Armenian in the diaspora,. Even if it is $1 a week per child, $10 a week per adult. Almost every Armenian family can skip a packet cigarettes or a visit to take away food. But NO our diaspora leaders are still fighting what mezze to serve at Harout concerts. If a security and development is released headed by an International Investment Group, WITHOUT a single Armenian leader, then a board of trustees made up of prominent Armenians represented from broad community and NO POLITICAL affiliations, we need MONEY MONEY to invest, secure weapons and develop our nation, like the Israelis. Otherwise at this rate there will be no Armenia in 50 years. The Turks are coming from all sides and Russia is simply giving away our lands bit by bit. WE HAVE NO FRIENDS, not Russia, not France, Not USA, they have been bought by Aliyevs Billions.
