France: Turkey is the only country not calling for respect of Karabakh truce

PanARMENIAN.Net - France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has said that Turkey is the only country that is not calling for respect of the ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

Le Drian on Thursday, October 15 criticised Turkey’s role in the conflict, where it supports Azerbaijan against Armenians, Reuters reports.

“There will not be a military victory on this issue so the ceasefire must be implemented,” he told a news conference alongside his German and Polish counterparts.

“What we can see today is the only country which isn’t calling for respect of the ceasefire is Turkey and that’s damaging.”

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
