Russia: Turkey works for world peace in Syria, Libya, Karabakh | Daily Sabah
Turkey is working to preserve world peace in crisis areas including Libya, Syria and Nagorno-Karabakh, Dmitry Polyanskiy, first deputy permanent representative of Russia to the United Nations, said Thursday, adding that both countries are cooperating in these areas.
Underlining the importance of Ankara for Moscow, Polyanskiy told reporters at the U.N. headquarters in New York, “Turkey is a neighboring country with which we have relations dating back centuries.”
A Russian-brokered deal on Nov. 10 halted a six-week conflict between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh and its surrounding areas, securing territorial gains for Azerbaijan. Turkey agreed with Russia that its troops would also monitor the cease-fire. Ankara and Moscow signed an agreement to establish a joint observation center in Nagorno-Karabakh.
