Russia & Turkey Agreed To Establish Joint Center To Monitor Karabakh Peace Deal

Turkey and Russia have signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a joint Turkish-Russian center to monitor the Karabakh peace deal.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the news on November 11 during a meeting with a parliamentary group of his party, the Justice and Development, in the capital, Ankara.

“Turkey will join the peacekeeping forces in the [Karabakh] region to monitor the implementation of the deal with Russia,” the Anadolu Agency quoted Erdogan as saying.

The Russian-Turkish monitoring center will be located in the Azerbaijani-held part of the Karabakh, according to the Turkish president.

The Karabakh peace deal, that was brokered by Russia, was signed by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan On November 9. Russian troops are being deployed in the region under the agreement to serve as a peacekeeping force.

The Kremlin denied any plans to deploy Turkish peacekeepers in Karabakh. The Turkish involvement will apparently be limited to the joint monitoring center.

The monitoring center will facilitate the implementation of the agreement, which should restore peace to Karabakh and allow the return of all displaced civilians.

    Turkey troops is more like a counter-balance on Russian troops invited by Azerbaijan. Typical influence efforts by both sides.

    This is sarcastic satire, not meant to be taken seriously, and I consider
    myself pro-Russian. A true Russo-Turkish alliance would be hilarious, hehe ?.

    Death to ISIS! Peace to Syria! To hell with the USA!
    Russia and Turkey, 21st-century team for world peace!

      My image about ME is a poker game in 3, Turkey, Russia, USA. Each one tries to trick the other 2.

  5. Vox Populi says:

    Moscow’s plan to end Azerbaijan-Armenia war in Nagorno-Karabakh puts Russia firmly in the strategic region’s driver’s seat and Turkey playing second fiddle as usual. Russia taught Armenia a lesson not to cross it again.

  6. Porc Halal says:

    I will take that as a fake news…I never saw russia confirming this since they brokered the deal…the fact is turkey was left aside
