Tass reports on Russian anticipation for secure and normalized conditions in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Moscow, as reported by the Tass News Agency, expresses optimism that meetings between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and various foreign leaders, notably including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will pave the way for heightened security and a return to normalcy in Nagorno-Karabakh. The sentiment was shared by Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov earlier this Monday.

Peskov commented to the media, "We continually hope that President Aliyev's engagements, especially with the Turkish president, will foster security in the region and bring about stability in Karabakh following recent events." He emphasized the sovereign rights of nations to establish cooperative ties and noted the deep-rooted relationships between Moscow, Ankara, and Baku.

The Turkish presidential office previously announced that Erdogan and Aliyev are set to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ygdir-Nakhichevan gas pipeline on September 25. The anticipated discussions between the two leaders will revolve around bilateral ties, pressing regional concerns, and global challenges, focusing on the evolving situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.
