“The important thing is to hold the hand of peace extended by the President of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev, at the call of our President. The biggest benefit of this will be Armenia. “Azerbaijan-Armenia, Azerbaijan-Turkey and then the six-party relations, ensuring stability in the Caucasus – this is the current goal.”
The statement came from Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, Hürriyet reports.
Asked about Armenia’s reaction to the call, the minister said, “This is a dead end. “Armenia has embarked on this path, recognizing the need to return to peace and stability.”
Hulusi Akar said: “Our dream is to create an atmosphere of stability and peace in the Caucasus. We believe that the discussions on the Zangazur and Lachin corridors will be resolved.
