ArmInfo. Russia interacts with Turkey in different directions - these are political and diplomatic contacts, and contacts between the military. This was stated on November 27 during a weekly briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, answering the question whether the Russian Federation managed to agree with Turkey on the parameters of interaction within the framework of peacekeeping in the Karabakh conflict zone.
According to her, of course, the vector is set by the heads of state, who regularly discuss the situation in the region. In this regard, she once again recalled the large-scale interview of the President of the Russian Federation on the situation around the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, where he said that: "Moscow and Ankara have different views on problems, and somewhere the approaches not only do not coincide, but also diverge. However, we are looking for those points of contact where our interaction can be useful not only in the context of bilateral relations, but also in the context of regional stability. "
"Actually, we are doing this. These contacts are being maintained, points of contact are sought and then filled with specific content. The parameters of interaction, again, are discussed and implemented by experts," Zakharova summed up.
On November 9, the Presidents of the Russian Federation and Azerbaijan Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev, as well as the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, signed a joint statement on the complete cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Russian leader, in particular, said that the Azerbaijani and Armenian sides will remain in their taken positions, and peacekeepers from the Russian Federation will be deployed in the region. An agreement was also reached to establish a joint Russian-Turkish ceasefire control center, which will be located on the territory of Azerbaijan. On November 17, the Turkish parliament approved a presidential decree providing for the sending of troops to Azerbaijan for a period of one year.
