Turkey persuaded Azerbaijan to attack Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.
“This conflict would not have started without Turkey’s intervention. It was Turkey that called on Azerbaijan to attack Nagorno-Karabakh, ”he stressed.
According to Pashinyan, Ankara adheres to the same strategy in the South Caucasus as in the Mediterranean against Greece and Cyprus, in Libya, Syria and Iraq. “This is an expansionary policy,” he explained.
The Prime Minister recalled that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said during the ceasefire talks that he did not want Azerbaijan to stop hostilities in the region. Moreover, he noted, the Turks are sending their military, as well as militants from Syria to fight on the side of Baku.
Pashinyan previously said that Turkey is the main sponsor of the conflict. “By decision and under the patronage of Turkey, it was decided to start a war, an attack against Nagorno-Karabakh,” he said.
Armenian Ambassador to Russia Vardan Toganyan also reported that Turkey transferred about 4 thousand mercenaries from Syria to the conflict zone. The Wall Street Journal reported on the dispatch of mercenaries, citing sources in Syria.
Azerbaijan and Turkey denied Ankara’s involvement in the conflict, including the use of mercenaries.
Earlier, Erdogan stated that Russia, together with the US and France, are providing “all kinds of support” to Armenia by supplying weapons. According to the Turkish leader, it is Yerevan that is responsible for violating the ceasefire regime in the conflict zone over Nagorno-Karabakh.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said on October 16 that Armenian businessmen, under the guise of civilian cargo, are importing mercenaries and weapons into the country from Russia.
Samvel Karapetyan, President of the Tashir Group of Companies and President of the Association of Armenian Entrepreneurs of Russia, considered the Azerbaijani leader’s statement “absurd” and “groundless.” Russia has not yet responded to the new accusations.
Fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh resumed on 27 September. The parties accused each other of provocations and introduced martial law.
