Overseas Minister Hakan Fidan mentioned the continuing tensions within the Karabakh area in a gathering together with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov in New York on Tuesday.
The Turkish Overseas Ministry stated in a press release that throughout the assembly, held on the sidelines of the 78th session of the U.N. Normal Meeting, Fidan and Bayramov mentioned the present state of affairs in Karabakh, which Azerbaijan liberated from practically three many years of Armenian occupation in a 2020 warfare.
The assembly got here as Azerbaijan stated on Tuesday that it began “counterterrorism” measures in Karabakh to uphold provisions outlined in a trilateral peace settlement with Russia and Armenia to finish the 2020 battle.
Relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia have been tense since 1991 when the Armenian army occupied Karabakh, a territory internationally acknowledged as a part of Azerbaijan, and 7 adjoining areas.
Within the fall of 2020, Azerbaijan liberated a number of cities, villages, and settlements from Armenian occupation throughout 44 days of clashes.
The warfare ended with a Russia-brokered cease-fire.
Nevertheless, tensions between the 2 nations proceed regardless of ongoing talks over a long-term peace settlement.
