Turkey and the OSCE comment positively on the Aliyev-Pashinyan-Michel meeting

The OSCE and the Turkish government have commented positively on the recent meeting of the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijani in Brussels this Wednesday.

The Polish OSCE Chairmanship tweeted that it welcomed the launch of a process towards a possible peace agreement as a result of the meeting between the Armenian prime minister, Nikol Pashinyan, the Azerbaijani president, Ilham Aliyev, and the President of the European Council, Charles Michel. It added that the Chairmanship-in-Office stood ready to assist in all efforts to ensure a stable and peaceful environment in the South Caucasus.

A statement by the Turkish Foreign Ministry earlier today also welcomed the move, saying that Turkey supports and actively contributes to the efforts for establishing peace and stability in the region.

Yesterday, Aliyev also had a telephone call with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, to discuss the outcomes of the recent meeting. Both leaders reportedly expressed satisfaction with the results achieved, and noted that the signing of a peace agreement and the opening of communications in the South Caucasus would benefit the wider region as a whole.
