Azerbaijan's latest military aggression against Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) has opened a "window of opportunity" to settle the situation in the region. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed such a view at Monday’s joint press conference in Nakhichevan with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
Erdogan expressed hope that Armenia will take advantage of this opportunity for stability and peace in the region.
"We expect that Armenia will respond to the hand of peace extended to it and take sincere steps," he said.
The Turkish president added that the military “success” of Azerbaijan is a pride for Turkey, and he congratulated the Azerbaijani army for showing "sensitivity" towards the civilians of the region.
