Mutually beneficial cooperation

When, with the mediation of Russia, it was possible to reach a ceasefire in the zone of the Karabakh conflict, statements began to appear from Ankara about the possible introduction of Turkish peacekeepers into Nagorno-Karabakh. Moreover, such statements ran counter to Erdogan’s promises that monitoring of the ceasefire regime would be carried out by Turkey exclusively by drones.
It is not the first time that the Turkish government has used the ambiguity of the situation in the Transcaucasian region to advance its interests. For example, Erdogan considered it possible to upset the stable balance created by Russia between Baku and Yerevan when he finally became convinced that the geopolitical vector of the policy of the Armenian authorities is leaning more and more openly in the western direction. The goals pursued by the Turkish authorities are very obvious – to consolidate their military forces in the region. However, the agreement signed by the conflicting parties under the auspices of Russia excludes any possibility of the appearance of a Turkish military contingent on the territory of Karabakh. Therefore, the statements of Turkish politicians who, for some unknown reason, are trying to promote the opinion about Ankara’s interference in NKR affairs will remain an empty phrase.
It should always be borne in mind that Moscow and Ankara have the same geopolitical rivals – Washington and European capitals, so Turkey clearly does not intend to break the promises made to such a powerful power.
