Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Tuesday that Turkey is inciting Azerbaijan to continue fighting in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
“Turkey is trying to expand its influence in South Caucasus by intervening in the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan,” Azerbaijan revealed, according to Al Arabiya.
He added that Azerbaijan will continue fighting as long as Turkey wants that, noting:” the concessions from both sides will solve the crisis.”
Noteworthy, Armenia and Azerbaijan continued to exchange accusations of violating the ceasefire agreement, while the European Union called on the two warring parties to respect the ceasefire, which came into effect on Saturday, expressing its grave concern about the continued violations and targeting of civilians.
While Armenia accused Turkey of seeking to violate the Moscow agreement, Assistant President of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev, warned during his visit to the city of Ganja, that his country would respond to any violations. According to Azerbaijan, shelling Ganja killed 7 civilians and injured 7 others.
However, the Armenian authorities in the Nagorno Karabakh region denied bombing Ganja, affirming that it respects the ceasefire agreement, and accused Azerbaijan of bombing civilian areas, including Stepanakert.
Noteworthy, no prisoners’ or dead bodies’ swap has been announced; this is one of the terms of the humanitarian ceasefire reached by Moscow.
The two sides exchange accusations regarding the violation of the ceasefire, while the Armenian city of Gores, which is inhabited by about 20 thousand people and close to the region, is witnessing the displacement of hundreds of Karabakh people fleeing the fighting there.
