"Indeed, it is not yet possible to confirm that the parties are adhering to the previously reached ceasefire and humanitarian truce agreements. Sadly, the parties do not adhere to them," Peskov said, commenting on the Turkish vice president's statement.
Earlier, Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay stated that Russia has failed to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis and the issue cannot be resolved without Turkey.
"As for the participation of third countries in the existing settlement formats, it depends solely on the political will of the conflicting parties.
