Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The Turkish parliament approved the decree of the president of the republic on sending military personnel to Azerbaijan, writes TASS.

The decree of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was supported by members of the ruling Justice and Development Party, the main opposition Republican People's Party, the Nationalist Unity Party and the Good Party. The document allows the presence of military personnel on the territory of Azerbaijan for one year.

The draft decree of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan on sending troops to Azerbaijan was sent to the parliament of the republic on the eve of November 16. It is noted that the military will be involved in monitoring the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh within the framework of the joint Turkish-Russian observation center. Sending military personnel to Azerbaijan meets the national interests of Turkey.

On November 11, Russian and Turkish Defense Ministers Sergei Shoigu and Hulusi Akar signed a memorandum on the establishment of a joint center to control the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh. It will be located on the territory of Azerbaijan. In particular, the center will consider complaints, questions or problems that are related to violation of agreements.

On November 9, Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan adopted a joint statement suggesting the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh from November 10. Azerbaijan will gain control over the territories of Aghdam, Gazakh, Kelbajar and Lachin regions, and will also retain the territories captured during the hostilities, including Shushi. Armenia will retain the Lachin corridor. As part of the agreement, the parties will also have to exchange prisoners of war and the bodies of those killed.
