ArmInfo. Turkey continues its attempts to gain a foothold in the South Caucasus and already considers itself entitled to indicate to international players with whom and how to interact.
Thus, speaker of the Grand National Assembly (parliament) of Turkey, Mustafa Sentop, who is visiting Baku, during his speech in the Milli Mejlis of Azerbaijan, assured that modern Armenia has become "a problem for global peace and security," apparently implying that the Armenian people " like a bone in the throat "of Ankara, which, having conducted the Armenian Genocide at the beginning of the twentieth century, still cannot calm down and again, now by the hands of Azerbaijanis, continues what it began in 1915 today in Artsakh.
At the same time, Sentop considered himself entitled to dictate to sovereign states with whom to interact and with whom not. "The countries that have influence in the South Caucasus must refuse to support Yerevan. Theforces to which the threads of Yerevan stretch, must stop playing in the region," Sentop said, without specifying which countries he was sending his message to.
Then, Sentop, apparently to justify the Turkish-Azerbaijani aggression, criticized the Minsk Group co- chairing countries, assuring that until today they had not taken any real step for a just settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. In this regard, it is worth noting that for the Turkish-Azerbaijani tandem there is the only fair settlement option - the fulfillment of all the conditions of Azerbaijan and the complete disregard for the rights of Artsakh and its population. Obviously, it is very illogical when the aggressor state, which unleashed military actions against the Karabakh people in the early 1990s of the last century, and the loser in this war, not only does not want to compromise, but also tries to impose its vision of a settlement through blackmail and threats.
"The OSCE Minsk Group has been unable to find a way out of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict for 30 years. Today, one can state the" brain death "of the OSCE MG, said the speaker of the Turkish parliament.
He also tried to justify the unleashed hostilities against Artsakh on the morning of September 27, assuring that if it is about defending the <Motherland>, then the war is justified and legal. "Turkey, of course, does not support war. However, no one has the right to turn the <lands of Azerbaijan> into a bargaining chip," he stressed.
The speaker noted that the crisis of international law and the policy of double standards inspire the aggressor countries, apparently implying the destabilizing policy pursued by Turkey in recent years in various regions, including Syria, Libya, Iraq, and the Mediterranean. "Global organizations are no longer able to ensure peace at the world level. Therefore, the reform of the UN is more important than ever," Sentop concluded.
