Turkey outraged about Putin's veto on Nagorno-Karabakh talks

PRAVDA Tuesday, 13 October 2020
Turkey explains Russia's unwillingness to let Turkey participate in the negotiation process regarding the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis. Putin vetoes Turkey's participation in the talks On October 13, the Turkish newspaper Karar published a front page article under the headline "Putin's veto to Turkey." In the article, the newspaper said that Moscow rejected the idea of Turkey's participation in potential peace talks with co-chairs of the Minsk Group (Russia, France and the United States) regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh problem. The goal of opposing this idea, the newspaper said, is to make the negotiation process fit into "Russia's regional interests."The Karar newspaper noted that the Minsk Group became active "only when the Azerbaijani troops started returning their lands," but "its calls for a ceasefire do not say anything about Yerevan's pullout from the occupied lands."The newspaper emphasizes that Moscow actually supports Armenia in this conflict, because "while Yerevan was bombing the civilian population of Ganja", Lavrov (Sergei Lavrov - Russian Foreign Minister - ed.) was meeting his counterpart (Zohrab) Mnatsakanyan in Moscow, where they discussed the unwillingness of Nagorno-Karabakh to attract Turkey to negotiations." Truce is not good for Azerbaijan "Not a truce, but a break for armament," the headline of the Yeni Shafak newspaper reads regarding  the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh, which has become "a life-giving drop of water for the exhausted Armenian army."According to the newspaper, the Armenians are taking advantage of the moment to strengthen their armed forces, while Russia, France, Iran and the United States are transferring high-tech weapons to Armenia.The Yeni Safak publication pointed out that Russia allegedly handed over heavy weapons, Kornet anti-tank missile systems and Igla anti-aircraft missile systems to Armenia. Some of those arms systems had allegedly been delivered on board the aircraft of Armenian Foreign Minister Mnatsakanyan, who took part in ceasefire negotiations in Moscow.Making a reference to the "authorities of Azerbaijan," the Yeni Safak wrote that France also sent military aid to Armenia during the truce. The transportation was carried out by passenger or VIP planes, because Georgia closed air and road routes for military purposes, the newspaper said.
