The Prime Minister of Armenia told Sky News that Turkey should stay out of the ongoing conflict between his nation and Azerbaijan.
Nikol Pashinyan is calling the hostilities over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh a civilisational issue.
He said: “Firstly, Turkey has become fully engaged, encouraging and inciting the conflict. Turkey has also transported mercenaries and terrorists from the territory of Syria to the conflict zone which is changing the whole context.
“This is becoming essentially Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia’s struggle against international terrorism.”
Sky News has not been able to prove the presence of Syrian mercenaries in Azerbaijan but the allegations continue to circulate in international media reports.
