New era begins in Caucasus with Azerbaijan’s victory – Turkish official
Turkish Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalın said Wednesday the liberation of Nagorno-Karabakh by Azerbaijan’s army ushers in a new period in which Turkey will continue to play a significant role, Daily Sabah reports.
“The Azerbaijani army liberated Kalbajar last night, which has been under occupation for 27 years. Karabakh is returning to its true identity, and a new era begins in the Caucasus,” Kalın said on Twitter.
Turkey will continue to play a crucial role in this new era, Kalın added.
The Azerbaijani military entered Kalbajar late Tuesday after nearly 27 years of illegal occupation by Armenia.
