Erdogan talks about sending Syrian “mujahideen” to Karabakh: They have something to keep them busy


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan responded to the accusations leveled against his country of sending Syrian fighters to the disputed Karabakh region to fight alongside the Azerbaijani army against Armenia, noting that Ankara did not send Syrian “mujahideen” To that area.

Erdogan said in his speech to the meeting of the parliamentary bloc, the Justice and Development Party: “Those who communicate with us accuse us of sending the mujahideen from Syria to Karabakh. We are not in this regard, and we have the ability to provide all kinds of support to the Azerbaijani brothers and we will do that,” according to the official Turkish Anatolia Agency .

The Turkish president added, “Why do you not talk about the support provided (to Armenia) by members of the Minsk group, there are large quantities of weapons coming from Russia and France, and you remain silent about this support. Do not go to Karabakh, “he says.

A clash erupted between the Azerbaijani and Armenian armies on the Nagorno Karabakh region, which is disputed between the two countries, a few weeks ago, and Turkey supports Azerbaijan and considers that Yerevan has occupied Azeri lands.

Social media users have shared videos showing Syrian fighters who say they are fighting alongside the Azerbaijani army in the disputed region, and Ankara denies the authenticity of those clips.
