‘Turkish-Russian joint Karabakh center under construction’
A Turkish-Russian joint center in Nagorno-Karabakh which will monitor the ceasefire deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia is under construction, said Turkish Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar, according to Anadolu Agency.
“Now, it is under construction. In a very short time, our friends will start their duty there,” Hulusi Akar told visiting representatives of Turkish non-governmental organizations in the capital Ankara.
Turkish and Russian generals as well as other military officers will be at the center together, Akar said, adding that they will work toward making the ceasefire lasting.
Akar said Turkey and Azerbaijan continue training activities and drills, and reiterated Ankara’s support for Baku’s “rightful cause”.
