Russian President Vladimir Putin informed President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Moscow’s trilateral meeting held with Azerbaijan and Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh during a phone call Wednesday.
Kremlin reported after the call that Putin said one of the major outcomes of the meeting was the confirmation of the intention to normalize the relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Erdoğan, on the other hand, expressed that Turkey desires circumstances in Nagorno-Karabakh that will enable Azerbaijanis and Armenians to live together in harmony without the necessity of monitoring. According to a presidential statement released following the meeting, Erdoğan said that when these circumstances are achieved, the whole world will see the constructive results of the Turkish-Russian partnership once again.
The two leaders also discussed the situation of the joint Turkish-Russian center in the region.
The leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a pact Monday to develop economic ties and infrastructure to benefit the entire Caucasus region.
Speaking in Moscow alongside Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian, Putin hailed the talks as “extremely important and useful.”
“We were able to come to an agreement … on the development of the situation in the region,” Putin told reporters four hours after the trilateral talks began.
