The number of the Turkish military contingent sent to Azerbaijan has been named

24

Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar made a statement that after the agreements, Turkish servicemen left for the territory of Azerbaijan as part of an observation mission.


The Turkish military department stressed that it is a question of "a limited contingent, which will be deployed in the joint control center of the situation in Azerbaijan." The number of the Turkish military contingent sent to Azerbaijan was also named.

Hulusi Acar:

We sent 35 of our officers and one general to the joint monitoring center.

The Turkish minister's statement says that the main task of the Turkish military in Azerbaijan will be monitoring the agreements reached after the parties stop fighting.

It should be recalled that the fighting in Karabakh ended on November 9 after 44 days of war. Moscow contributed to the end of the armed conflict. Russia has brought in up to 2 peacekeeping troops to Nagorno-Karabakh, and there are also servicemen of a mine action center and specialists from the Ministry of Emergency Situations.

A clash took place in the Hadrut region a few days ago. According to some reports, the shootout took place between the Azerbaijani military and representatives of the Karabakh side, who found themselves behind enemy lines and could not get out of there in time.

The Turkish military, as noted, are planning to conduct monitoring using unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as to carry out car trips across the region in order to "monitor how both sides of the conflict are fulfilling their obligations."

Earlier it was noted in Russia that the Russian-Turkish joint monitoring center will deal with the issue of “ending the presence of mercenaries” in Karabakh and in the adjacent territories.

According to the latest information, Turkish officers arrived in Azerbaijan.

      The Turks are slowly and surely digging into the Caucasus.
      The Turks "gnawed" into the Caucasus back in the First Chechen ........ and maybe back in 90-91.

      And tomatoes and apples from Azerbaijan are returning to the Russian market, according to a fresh decision of the relevant structures of the Russian government.
      And no one remembers the downed Russian helicopter.
      Mr. Aliev and his comrades got off with a light (slight) fright.

      Then there is no need to be offended and booze when everyone and everyone is wiping their feet about Russia.

      ... in 1985 or even earlier.
      An anecdote comes to mind about a cowboy, to whom an inner voice said: "This is not the end. Get off your horse, throw your weapon aside, spit in the face of the Indian leader."

        Not a single alarmist remembers how much noise there was about NATO troops in the Transcaucasus.
        As a result, there are only 36 observers. As our leadership has repeatedly stated. hi

    Why do we need Artsakh? We do not want to live there, there is no oil or gold. And we have placed a military base there in fact. laughing

    Huge contingent! And they puffed out their cheeks ... Where do they bite there? They are slowly being squeezed out of Idlib, in Libya they have quieted down, in Karabakh our peacekeepers ... Our helicopter was shot down ... Horror, what a dark story. Really dark. Could Turkish proxies be involved in this, or, God forbid, Turkish special forces ... It's no coincidence that everything is "in the fog" there ... No one will let anything "on the brakes" down ...

      Huge contingent!

      The title of the article notably veils who it is.
      These are only those Turks who will be part of the observation mission, i.e. ADDITIONALLY directed and only to the observation mission.
      All other Turkish "instructors" and "consultants" have hardly disappeared from Azerbaijan. And this is at least another 600 helmets and caps.
      About the same forces that Erdi intends to additionally send to the line of demarcation in Karabakh, so far there is silence.

    Well, these 36 Turks are just going to spy on us, monitor the situation, and there are hundreds of others there for a long time to build a sultanate, or a caliphate, by someone else's hands. ..

    "Shamil travels with the executioner, and I with the treasurer." Prince Alexander Ivanovich Baryatinsky laughing Do they consider themselves the most cunning, capable, in spite of everything, not to step on this rake? Let them try and be convinced. And only when it comes to them, it will be possible to start talking again. On new conditions and on the normal principles of "friendship and good neighborliness." And on completely different legal principles. Now again the fork - you will answer "as expected" - everything - you are ours - now you will fight with the army of the Great Turan to the last Turanchoks under the cries of the liberal side-by-side "Shout, good people, Russian chauvinists rape a child!" You will not answer - "Ha, weakling! Rusty gas station ..."

      And they try, and with impunity yes Tried in Syria - it worked yes
      As a result of a very muddy agreement, it was even possible to snatch off a piece of Syrian territory "almost legally" ...
      In Libya, Turkish troops have also settled quite comfortably.
      We climbed into the Caucasus - again no one says anything to them and does not pull back ...

      When will they be convinced?

    One general - 35 officers! And about the number of their subordinates, the Minister of Defense modestly kept silent. And so it is clear that the goat climbed into the vegetable garden with cabbage.

    This conflict began strangely and strangely receded, but it did not end. There are too many disaffected on both sides.

      Naturally there will be a continuation. The only question is "When and in what form?"

      Undoubtedly, any serious troubles in Russia and Azerbaijan and Turkey will very quickly "succumb to another Armenian provocation" with joy. Azerbaijanis have already proved that they know how to wait, while they do not tell about the past days with barbecue and cognac, but "sharpen their sabers." Erdi is more difficult - he cannot wait, he needs new victories and more often.

    Well, there was talk that as many peacekeepers would be expelled as Russia, that Aliyev let the Turks into Azerbaijan and what will happen now. Already the footage showed how someone was loaded somewhere. It turns out that as many as 36 people were allowed in, purely symbolic. Still true There were reports of Turkish sappers working there. Interestingly, they are included in these 35 people?

      It is unlikely that the officers will personally deal with mine clearance.

      Good day everyone. Regarding the general stay of the Turks in Azerbaijan - they exist, no one denies, since the 90s, Turkish advisers have helped build and train the army of Azerbaijan. But there are not so many of them as it seems. At the brigade level, there used to be 1-2 officers. Now even less. Joint exercises are also less frequent. At the same time, senior officers of Azerbaijan are being trained at the Academy of the General Staff of the Russian Federation. Azerbaijan takes the experience of different countries. In recent years, many cadets have been sent to military schools of the Russian Federation, which also shows that in the future it is planned to purchase Russian weapons (otherwise, why would specialists in Russian weapons and equipment be needed). Azerbaijan is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement and has no plans to join NATO or the CSTO. These 36 people are purely staff officers - three shifts of 8-10 people for 8 hours will sit in a common center with Russian officers, a general - well, because Russians also have senior generals, parity must be supported. As for the sappers - again, there are not so many of them, they work in shifts - because the territory is simply polluted with explosive objects - and these are arable lands, roads, settlements where civilians should return.

      136 sappers of the Turkish army are in the liberated territories and help to clear mines from the territory of the Azerbaijani army. These soldiers have nothing to do with the peacekeepers.

    Sovereignty is like honey: if it exists, then it is not there right away. The chance to regain sovereignty will appear when Turkey disintegrates.

    French in Mali - a brigade general and two soldiers killed.
    Column movement, explosive device.
    (almost the same scenario as in the case of General Gladkikh in August
    - a column, an explosive device, a general and two servicemen)
