Turkey Says It Will Send Troops to Help Azerbaijan Fight Armenians if Requested

Turkey will not hesitate to send soldiers and provide military support for Azerbaijan if such a request is made by Baku, Vice President Fuat Okaty said on Wednesday, adding there was no such request at the moment.

Earlier, Armenia’s prime minister said he saw no possibility of a diplomatic solution at this stage in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Azerbaijan. Turkey has vowed full solidarity with Azerbaijan and has accused Yerevan of occupying Azeri lands.

Speaking in an interview with broadcaster CNN Turk, Oktay also criticised the OSCE’s Minsk group – formed to mediate the conflict and led by France, Russia and the United States – of trying to keep the issue unresolved and supporting Armenia, both politically and militarily.

    If this story had legs, the ambassador would close shop and send embassy personnel to a nearby friendly nation until the threat lost “steam.”

    We have a more substantial turn occurring that has Erdogan seeking true north guidance. Recent events in Syria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Turkish financial markets are dictating my observations and Erdogan’s leanings.

    Turkey’s efforts to de-dollarize might be the strategic issue that dictates others.
