Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said his country sent 60 troops to Azerbaijan to join Russian forces in monitoring the ceasefire in Karabakh.

Speaking to Turkish television channel NTV on Tuesday, Akar said talks between Ankara, Baku, and Moscow on setting up a joint Russian-Turkish monitoring center on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict were ongoing and that “all that remains is to resolve a number of issues related to the construction work and the accommodation of the members of the mission”.

The Turkish minister said:

“Our men will work with the Russians. As long as they stay there, we will discuss the issue again with the Russian side.”

Akar confirmed that the work would be carried out under the joint supervision of “two Turkish and Russian generals”, adding that 30-60 Turkish soldiers would be directly involved in monitoring the ceasefire in Karabakh with their Russian counterparts.

On November 11, communication between the defense ministers of Russia and Turkey resulted in the signing of a memorandum between the two sides to establish a joint ceasefire monitoring center in Karabakh.
