Turkish Defense Ministry announced the start of the work of the Joint Russian-Turkish Center in Karabakh

62

The Turkish Ministry of Defense is distributing a statement that negotiations with representatives of the military department of the Russian Federation on the creation of a Joint Center in Karabakh have been completed. A corresponding agreement on the military presence has been signed. It should be recalled that earlier the President of Turkey and the Foreign Minister of this state have repeatedly stated that the Turkish military will appear in the region and that it will be a question of "an equal Russian-Turkish mission."


The reports of the Turkish military department say that activities have already begun within the framework of the Joint Center in Karabakh.

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said that preliminary agreements on the creation of such a center were reached with Sergei Shoigu on November 11 - the next day after the start of the ceasefire.

Russian officials have long said that the presence of the Turkish military is not provided for by the trilateral agreement (Armenia-Azerbaijan-Russia). In response, the Turks announced a new agreement.

The Russian side does not comment on Turkish messages at the moment.

At the same time, a statement appeared on the official page of the Turkish Ministry of Defense that the detachments of Turkish sappers have already arrived in Azerbaijan and have begun to assist the Azerbaijani military in demining the territories that have come under Baku control. The press service of the Turkish military department once again emphasizes that we are talking about the regions "under Armenian occupation." It is indicated that the Joint Center has already begun its work.

The number of Turkish military personnel who will be in Karabakh is not reported at the moment, as well as where exactly the headquarters of the Joint Center will be located.

Against this backdrop, the President of Azerbaijan made a proposal to create a corridor between the Nakhichevan Autonomous Republic and the rest of Azerbaijan. Recall that such a clause was originally present in the trilateral agreement.

              So with Adjara there, it seems, everything was clear for a long time. True, they say that at one time Saakashvili before the 08.08.08 war successfully "brought constitutional order" in Adjara. I wonder what the situation is now and would not Erdogan want to add such a tidbit? I'm afraid the truth is that the United States will not allow him for some time.

      Ankara is transferring troops to the border with Armenia. Despite the end of the armed conflict in Karabakh, the situation in the region remains explosive and the invasion of Turkish military personnel into the territory of a neighboring state is not ruled out. Avia.pro writes about it.
      According to the newspaper, several thousand Turkish servicemen, as well as offensive weapons, including multiple launch rocket systems and tanks, have already been deployed to the border with Armenia. It is reported by Rambler.

    The sappers arrived in Azerbaijan, and not in the part of Karabakh that is under the control of the Russian peacekeepers.

        Erdogan's troops in Karabakh were not and are not. In that part of it, which is not under the direct control of Azerbaijan. The part that is under the control of Azerbaijan is in fact Azerbaijan (as they say - see paragraph one)
        Point three is just tracing paper from point one.

              How many times can you repeat.
              1. The plane was shot down in preparation for a coup against Erdogan himself.
              2. The fact that Aliyev "pleaded guilty for the helicopter" so far only means that Aliyev admitted that our helicopter was shot down by a missile that flew from the territory of Azerbaijan. But the investigation will show exactly who shot down our helicopter. And at the same time he will clarify whether our helicopter was shot down from the territory of Azerbaijan, or all the same, the launch site of MANPADS is the territory of Armenia, but close to the border with Azerbaijan.

          There are no Turks officially in Karabakh. There are pro-Turkish people. Checkboxes. Dances with a tambourine.
          No troops. There are bandyuki. No troops.

      That's rightly noted. With the invitation of Azerbaijan, the Turks can now calmly stay on its territory. Without entering the demelitarized zone where our peacekeepers are. Moreover, even on tanks. The Turks will still strive for joint patrolling as in Syria, which we absolutely do not need

          Hello zem. They don't see the obvious. Aliyev is not a stupid person and with the Turkish presence he creates a counterbalance to Russia. It is clear that there will be no Turks on the dividing line (it’s not Aliyev who doesn’t need it. But the Turks will insist) In general, a good porridge has been brewed there. As if our boys did not have to disentangle it again. My opinion - It was necessary to let the Azerbaijanis finish this gimmick. hi

        Big difference. Assad first invited - then Russia "entered", moreover - to fight the terrorists.
        And Turkey first entered Azeibarjan (under the guise of joint exercises), and only then, when "an awl appeared out of the sack," Aliyev hurriedly, indistinctly, confused
        confessed that he was not against the presence of Turkish military "consultants" in Azerbaijan. And now, Turkey does not hide its plans. She came to Azeibarjan not to fight terrorists, as Russia did to Syria, but of her own free will, knowing that no one would expel her from here. And now, for fun over Russia, he invites her to "participate in something joint", but on their terms. hi

          Alas, so. The fact is that before Karabakh there was Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus, Moldova. The concept of "exclusiveness of Russia's interests in the post-Soviet space", born in the late 90s and followed by Putin for 20 years, has died. Russia invested a lot of money in these and similar countries in exchange for "kisses and promises." In the end, no money, no real achievements.
          This was confirmed by Putin himself in his last speech at a meeting of the Valdai Club, where the president demonstrated calmness and relaxation when discussing acute crises in the near abroad.
          It became overhead to contain "expensive and unnecessary" partners. The same Lukashenko. Got $ 1.5 billion in Sochi, so what? He does not comply with the agreements with Putin, tries to play multi-vector again, and the image losses are attributed to Russia.
          Whatever one may say, but choosing between Azerbaijan and Syria, Putin chose Syria. Why? - A separate question.

          It is not entirely clear what you call a lie.
          Press release available. There are forces that distort this information always and for any reason.

            Well, for a start, the Ministry of Defense claimed that the Su25 of the Ukrainian Air Force shot down a Boeing flight MH17 .. the dumbest lie ..
            The footage that was shown by Putin to O. Stone, where the American A-10 plane attacks the Barmaleevs on the ground, and Putin presents it as the work of our aviation, and much more)))

                Boeing was shot down from the ground, presumably from Buk .. who shot down the question is still open ..

    and someone didn’t believe it!
    Turks in the Caucasus, we are in Syria. Turkey and Russia are in symbiosis, when each side is vital for the other. For Moscow, it is extremely important for Erdogan to continue the line on opposing Turkey to the West, which distracts the West from opposing Russia and leads to "NATO brain death" and increases the importance of Europe's cooperation with Moscow in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
    Turkey does what Russia did in 2015 (Syria) - by invitation, it provides military assistance to the legitimate government of a sovereign state in the fight against separatists on its own territory.
    Will Erdogan stop in the Caucasus?

    Quote: La Peruse
    In the eyes of the Armenians, we betrayed them, and then, in their primordial territories, how they are holding the Turks under the arm ... The Armenians were one of the first terrorists in the USSR, there were explosions in the metro in 77. They have the same Nazianism ... And here is such a reason ... Look at the root of Kozma Prutkov (s)
    I hope the FSB has already taken control of potential Armenian terrorists. Moreover, it is easier to do this now than under the USSR. Now "respected people" from among the leadership of the SAR and other leaders of the Armenian diaspora are simply summoned to a place called by the people "where they need to", where they are explained in a language that is understandable to them that in the event of an emergency similar to what happened in Moscow 8 January 1977, they will have to say goodbye to business and other assets in Russia. Forever and ever. And free of charge. hi Come on and sit on the track. hi There is always something to sit for. But definitely not for politics. laughing

    Ehh, don't let the Turks go there, then you can't drive them away with pissing rags.
    It is possible as civilian observers such as the OSCE in our Donbas. But only. This is maximum.

      It's too late to lament. The Turks are already there.
      But the local sofa strategists once again changed their shoes on the fly: "Why shouldn't the Turks be there, but these are observers, not military men, etc." )))
      We are waiting for local experts to start calling the Turks "brothers".
