Kremlin rules out presence of Turkish peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh

The Azerbaijani President's idea of a joint peacekeeping mission of the Turkish and Russian military personnel has not been agreed with the other parties to the agreement to end the fighting in the Karabakh conflict zone, the press secretary of the Russian President states.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the agreement of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia on the cessation of the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh has come into force today. In particular, it provides for the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in the Karabakh conflict zone. Meanwhile, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliev announced a joint peacekeeping mission of the military personnel from Russia and Turkey, which contradicted the Moscow's position.

The issue of the presence of Turkish peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh was not coordinated with anyone, says Russian President's press secretary Dmitry Peskov. "There is not a single word about that in the published text of the statement. The three parties did not agree on that, and the stay of Turkish soldiers in Karabakh was not agreed," stated Dmitry Peskov as quoted by the "Kommersant".
