“It’s clear that Azerbaijan and Turkey are enhancing their ties. It’s important that this doesn’t harm stability and predictability in the region. In this regard, Russia has regular contacts with the Turkish and Azerbaijanis colleagues,” Peskov said when asked if the Kremlin views the development of relations as a potential threat to Russia and its allies.
