In resolving the conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), Azerbaijan and Armenia entrusted Russia with the role of monitoring and enforcing the ceasefire. On November 10, 2020, Vladimir Putin, Ilham Aliyev and Nikol Pashinyan announced a complete ceasefire and all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
The people perceived the decision on an armistice in Azerbaijan as a victory and liberation of the occupied lands, while in Armenia people came to a rally and demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister. Despite protests and attempts to force Pashinyan to leave the main post of the country and continue the war, peace came to NKR. One of the key moments of the victorious war for Azerbaijan was the open support of Turkey. Armenia provided evidence of their direct participation in the war, but the fact of their intervention was not accepted by the world community. After the announcement of the ceasefire, Turkey announced joint work with the Russian Federation to ensure peace in the NKR. Russia refused to coordinate the issue of a peacekeeping mission with Turkey. Ankara on the territory of the NKR will lead to an escalation of the conflict and Moscow understands this.
Having received a refusal, Turkey decided to agree on the issue of establishing a monitoring center in Azerbaijan together with the Russian delegation. This center will help to jointly solve problematic issues in the shortest possible time and will not cause a conflict of interest.
