Turkey criticizes France's call for Nagorno-Karabakh independence
2020-11-26 | Since 2 Month
The French Senate's adoption of a resolution urging the government to recognise Nagorno-Karabakh as an independent republic is "ridiculous, biased and far from reality", Turkey said today.
"This decision of the French Senate is a clear indicator of why the [Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe] OSCE Minsk Group, led by co-chairs that have to be impartial, has provided no solution while being biased," the ministry said in a written statement.
France wants international supervision to implement a ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict amid concern that Russia and Turkey could strike a deal to exclude Western powers from future peace talks, the presidency said today.
