Turkish FM: "I warn Armenia once again not to engage in further provocations"
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an address on Monday that he warned Armenia once again not to engage in further provocations.
Speaking at an Ambassador's Conference, Cavusoglu said that they did not hesitate to support Azerbaijan when the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War began.
"When the clashes began, we supported liberation of occupied territories by the brave Azeri army. Then we quickly shifted our efforts to maintaining peace in the region, and owing to that, we are now able to talk about regional peace and cooperation instead of occupied territories, displaced people and imminent armed conflicts."
Cavusoglu raised his hand to point his finger, and added:
"Here, I warn Armenia once again not to engage in further provocations."
He continued to say that they are determined to fight against terror organizations and that all countries should support Turkey in its fight against terrorism.
About Nagorno-Karabakh conflict
The 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh War resulted in Azeri forces gaining control of several cities and towns and hundreds of villages in Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed region internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan although its population is historically and currently predominantly Armenian.
The war left almost 7,000 troops dead on both sides and over 20,000 injured.
A ceasefire brokered by Russia has been enforced by around 2,000 Russian peacekeeping troops.
The ceasefire was recently violated -by Azeri forces according to Russian officials- in early August as clashes led to at least three fatalities.
