Zakharova on Erdoğan’s statement regarding withdrawal of Russian peacekeeping troops from Artsakh in 2025

Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova referred to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s statement that the Russian peacekeeping troops should be withdrawn from Artsakh by 2025.

Zakharova noted that the Russian peacekeepers were based in Artsakh based on the tripartite statement of November 9, 2020. However, Turkey is not a party to that statement.

“Preservation of peace in the South Caucasus is in the interests of Azerbaijan, Armenia and the entire region, including Turkey. Thus, we emphasize the importance of cooperation with our Turkish partners with regard to the joint Russian-Turkish monitoring center in the district of Aghdam,” Zakharova said.
