Moscow comments on Erdogan`s visit to occupied Shushi

Moscow comments on Erdogan`s visit to occupied Shushi

ArmInfo. Moscow does not consider it correct to mix the topics related to Nagorno-Karabakh with Azerbaijan's bilateral relations with third countries.  So, on  June 17, at a weekly briefing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman  Maria Zakharova, answering a question about how Moscow views Turkey's  attempts to gain a foothold in the region, as evidenced by the latest  visit of the Turkish leader to the occupied Armenian Shushi, in  particular, said:

"We do not consider it correct to mix the topics related to  Nagorno-Karabakh with the bilateral relations of Azerbaijan or, by  the way, Armenia, with third countries. It is in this vein that we  view the latest Azerbaijani-Turkish contacts at the highest level. We  proceed from the fact that bilateral contacts in the region,  including along the military line, should not line up against other  states, and we strongly support steps aimed at normalizing the  dialogue between Baku and Yerevan, between Yerevan and Ankara.   Interaction in the South Caucasus should develop on the basis of the  principle of good-neighborliness, and of course with a balance of  interests of all countries in the region. "

Referring to the statements made by the leaders of Turkey and  Azerbaijan from Shushi, the diplomat noted that given the processes  that are taking place in the region, the multilateral efforts that  were aimed at leading the parties to conclude agreements and start  moving in a peaceful direction, all statements should work for a  single target. "All statements should work for stabilization, for  peaceful development, for the restoration of ties, and of course,  meet the interests of the civilians of this region," Zakharova summed  up.  To recall, on June 15 in the Armenian-occupied Shushi, the  leaders of Turkey and Azerbaijan, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Ilham  Aliyev signed the so-called Shusha Declaration on Alliance.

Aliyev noted that the so-called Shusha Declaration on Alliance  between Azerbaijan and Turkey determines the direction of future  cooperation between the two states. "Practically all spheres are  covered. The importance of energy security, the Southern Gas Corridor  for Turkey, Azerbaijan and Europe is indicated.  Each issue reflected  in the declaration is very important. Among them I would like to  highlight two issues.

Firstly, this declaration reflects the issues of cooperation in the  field of defense and defense industry, as well as mutual military  assistance, "said the leader of Azerbaijan.  The second important  issue Aliyev called the opening of new transport communications,  including transport links through the Syunik region of the Republic  of Armenia. Zangezur corridor.  The signed joint declaration of  alliance states that the parties will provide each other with  assistance in the event of a threat or attack by a third state on the  independence or territorial integrity of either side.  The document  emphasizes that Turkey and Azerbaijan are making joint efforts to  address issues of regional and global security and stability.

The declaration states that the opening of the Zangezur corridor  between Turkey and Azerbaijan and the Nakhijevan-Kars railway line  will contribute to the development of relations between the two  countries.  Let us also note that Azerbaijan has already begun to  blackmail Armenia through its pocket political scientists, stating  that if Yerevan refuses the so-called Zangezur corridor, then Baku  will close the Lachin corridor - the only way to ensure communication  between Armenia and Artsakh.
