Armenia files lawsuit against Turkey with ECHR over involvement in 44-day war

Armenia on Tuesday (18 May) filed an interstate complaint against Turkey with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), accusing it of recruiting Syrian militants to take part in combat operations in Nagorno-Karabakh, and for aiding Azerbaijan during last year’s 44-day war.

"The government has provided a lot of evidence proving that Turkey recruited Syrian mercenaries and sent them from Syria to Azerbaijan, supplied the Azerbaijani armed forces with combat vehicles, weapons and munitions, and took part in the conflict in other ways," the Armenian mission to the ECHR said on 18 May.
