Potential Joint Russian-Turkish Monitoring Center For Nagorno-Karabakh, No Turkish Peacekeepers To Be Deployed

On November 10, the Russian and Turkish defense ministries will sign a special agreement on the establishment of a joint monitoring center for the observance of the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh, an unnamed diplomatic source told Interfax.

The work of the monitoring corps is regulated by the fifth point of the joint statement of the heads of state of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia.

Earlier, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that a joint peacekeeping mission of Russia and Turkey would work in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Aliyev said there would be joint peacekeeping patrols, and so on, with soldiers from Turkey also taking part, but they are, in fact, not. Turkish specialists will likely take part in this “joint monitoring center” and that appears to be all of it.

The Kremlin said that the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan did not agree on the deployment of Turkish military in Karabakh.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova, gave an interview to the radio station “Echo Moskvi” and underlined the following in regard to the peace deal for Nagorno-Karabakh:

  • The statement on the end of the war in Karabakh, signed by the three heads of state – Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan, will be published in the near future.
  • Further steps on the incident with the Russian helicopter shot by Baku in Armenia will be determined after investigation.
  • The issue of the status of Karabakh is defined in the statement of Putin, Pashinyan, Aliyev.
  • The ceasefire plan in Karabakh is being implemented in accordance with Russia’s call to resolve the conflict through political means.

The helicopter issue took place on November 9th, and Azerbaijan apologized for the incident.

It said that its forces shot down a Russian helicopter near its border with Armenia by accident, expressing apologies to Moscow and readiness to pay compensation.

“The Azerbaijani side offers an apology to the Russian side in connection with this tragic incident,” the foreign ministry said in a statement on Monday, adding the move was an accident and “not aimed against” Moscow.

It came shortly after Russia said one of its Mi-24 helicopters was downed in Armenia, killing two servicemen and wounding another.

The Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement that the helicopter was hit by a man-portable air-defence system and launched an investigation to determine who was responsible for the act.

Azerbaijan’s foreign ministry said the helicopter flew at a low altitude during hours of darkness and close to the state border between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

“Helicopters of the Russian air force had not been previously sighted in the area,” it added.

Azerbaijan said its forces decided to open fire due to heightened tensions amid intense fighting with Armenian forces over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

  1. Mr T says:

    so what outside Karabag, TR army is will be there. and AZ army is Turkish army.

    1. Vox Populi says:

      Another mess like Syria.

      1. Mark M. Nobelman says:

        This fool lives on effin delusions

    2. Mark M. Nobelman says:


  2. Vox Populi says:

    This was quite obvious, this is a Russian and Iranian initiative and Turks were not invited.

    1. RichardD says:

      And the IDF and Mossad all over Azerbaijan.

      1. Vox Populi says:

        There are more NATO, Zionists and other US vassals in Dubai and UAE and Oman than in Azerbaijan, so that is an exaggerated threat. The border is barely a few kms wide and easy to monitor as Russians are in control now.

        1. RichardD says:

          The IDF and Mossad are embedded in the Azeri offensive. And Israel is a primary weapons supplier to the Azeri military. That’s an obvious security liability for the Iranians.

          1. Vox Populi says:

            Iran has lived with empty Zionist threats for 42 years now. It is at its strongest militarily, so having a few Zionist advisers embedded with the Azerbaijan military will hardly tilt the strategic balance at a time US policy is in total disarray and unrest across the US looms as more Republicans question the election. The Zionists are not that crazy to start a war with Uncle Sam in trouble.

          2. RichardD says:

            It goes beyond a few embedded advisors. The IDF is flying aircraft on Iran’s borders and pursueing Yinon plan machinations there.

          3. Harry Smith says:

            Flying on Iran’s border is not a big threat. If Israel could deploy it’s missiles or troops, that’s would be a danger.
            PS do you ever sleep?

          4. RichardD says:

            The Iranians disagree that Israel flying on their border isn’t a threat.

          5. Harry Smith says:

            We have to ask Garga about it, at my point.

          6. John Brown says:

            Once Iran has the S-400 probably in a few months, the USSA won’t be able to attack Iran and actually hit any targets enough to cause significant damage, without losing more then 75% of its total air force.

            Israel won’t even get close and will lose any jet missile well short of any target they send against Iran

          7. Fog of War says:

            Still waiting on ANY weapons shipments to Iran.

          8. John Brown says:

            Iran already got a lot from Russia like the S-300.

            Try to make your lies more believable.

            It would not surprise me if Russia already sent the S-400 to Iran

            Russia also already helped Iran with command and control software and electronic jamming equipment when the JSSA assainated the Iranian general.

          9. occupybacon says:

            Mossad is in Azerbaijan officially for 15 years, they don’t need to be in Nagorno, they need to be in Baku.

          10. RichardD says:

            They just expanded their border presence significantly and undoubtedly were involved instigating a Yinon plan war there.

          11. John Brown says:

            Azerbaijan doesn’t need anything from Israel any more. Israel will be paying a premium for Azer oil now or they will need to to look for new oil supplier fast.

          12. occupybacon says:

            Doubt :)

    2. Mark M. Nobelman says:

      Hahahah. His the same idiotic peasant indian. WHO goes by the username ”Zionism is evil” His a mental case. it clearly says in the headline Turkey Monitors the peacecenter and will have people on the ground. It has defense treaty with Azerbaijan on top of that. His been also falsely inserting Iran in everything Russian which is delusional.

      If Spartak Moscow or Zenit.St petersbourg wins the Champions league he would also say it was due to Russia and Iranian initiative. What a nutcase.

      His been spamming the comment sections with parallel realities of events and incidents that has not happened

  3. Kamīrusan says:

    I’m Seeing reports denying Turkish PK are involved, so it’s just Russian PK forces there

    1. Vox Populi says:

      That would be overstretch for already spread out Turkey from Libya to Armenia and geography makes it difficult. Armenia only borders a friendly Iran, which makes it the kingmaker.


  4. Servet Köseoğlu says:

    Unnecessary to deploy Turkish troops there..Aftermath of the war is much more interesting and promising,lion-share in new military contracts is enough for Turkey atm..Ps:France is the minor looser here,ı dont think Azerbaijan will make any miitary contract with Frances Thales anymore..:)))

    1. Vox Populi says:

      France and NATO in general have lost. Russia is now firmly entrenched in Armenia and even monitoring Azerbaijan so that makes its influence in Baku even stronger. The Armenians are now very dependent on Russia and their only land routes are Russia via Iran. So it does not take a PhD in Cartography to figure out who won strategically.

      1. Servet Köseoğlu says:

        Russia was always in win-win situation since the beginning of the war..They accompished their goal through Azerbaijan(getting rid of Pashinyan)..Armenia is not state anymore…it cant recover in short-mid term..İran is not winner or loser since there has not been border change..Maybe militarily they got an opportunity to test their Electronic warfare capabilites..

        1. Vox Populi says:

          Totally correct. Even their RT said the same. Putin disliked Pashinyan and this gave him an opportunity to get rid of him and bring back Armenia into the fold and also serve as a warning to others to know that Russia is back as the US simply was left impotent. Russia and Iran played the good cop and bad cop, but with same goals and Turkey is a partner to both.

    2. occupybacon says:

      Turkey assures by that permanent presence in Azerbaijan.

  5. HitlerWasRight says:

    of course turkey will be there because putina obeys turkey, erdogan is his daddy

    1. Cromwell says:

      Dream on Hitler.

  6. Cromwell says:

    How long will it be before those Terrorists start shooting at Russian soldiers?

  7. Fog of War says:

    The timing and location of the ” shoot down ” is highly suspicious. The Azeris capture a major stronghold of NK and were ready to secure total victory and all of a suspend a helicopter is shot down near the Azeri autonomous zone far away from the actual fighting in NK. Come on folks.

  8. Lazy Gamer says:

    Russia just averted an 11/9. lol

  9. The Objective says:

    If Turkish forces participate in the joint monitoring center, that means they are part of the monitoring mission even if they don’t have troops on the ground in NK. They’ll keep an eye on what Russia does to make sure it doesn’t cheat. Turkey can deploy troops there within hours if the need ever arises.
    Like I said before, Turkey isn’t abandoning Azerbaijan to this, neither will it abandon the Muslims of Syria to Russia’s murderous brutality.
    Democracy is the only viable option for Syria – not dictatorship, and Russia will not be allowed to reinstate its dictator. Russia already lost Syria. All it’s doing now is spending more resources on a lost cause. Neither the Americans nor Turks will leave Syria without a democracy, and Putin lacks the military might push them out.
