PanARMENIAN.Net – A top Turkish official has threatened Armenia with new problems, piling accusations on Yerevan for “endangering regional peace.”
In the Second Karabakh War, Turkey supported Azerbaijan militarily, also by transferring terrorist mercenaries from the Middle East to fight against Karabakh. Armenia was the first to report on Turkey’s deployment of thousands of Syrian fighters to Azerbaijan. International media publications followed suit, as did reactions from France, Russia, Iran and Syria. The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army has already unveiled footage from the interrogation of two such terrorists captured on the front.
Comments from Ömer Çelik, a spokesperson for Turkey’s Ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party), came on Sunday, July 26, after the Armenian side reported more injuries from Azerbaijani shooting in border areas.
Çelik took to Twitter to threaten Yerevan with new problems “if Armenia does not understand the messages of [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdoğan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.”
He reminded that Erdoğan has been calling for a six-nation regional cooperation platform that also includes Armenia, describing it as a “historical opportunity”. Çelik said that Turkey “will not allow Yerevan to endanger regional peace.”
