Russian-Turkish joint Karabakh center under construction
A Turkish-Russian joint center in Nagorno-Karabakh which will monitor the cease-fire deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia is under construction, Turkey’s defense minister Hulusi Akar said.
"Now, it is under construction. In a very short time, our friends will start their duty there," Akar told visiting representatives of Turkish non-governmental organizations in Ankara.
The minister noted that Turkish and Russian generals as well as other military officers will be at the center together, adding that they will work toward making the cease-fire lasting, Anadolu Agency reported.
Akar said Turkey and Azerbaijan continue training activities and drills, and reiterated Ankara’s support for Baku’s "rightful cause".
