Azerbaijan, directly backed by Turkey, unleashed war against Artsakh on September 27. Turkey, in addition to various types of assistance to Azerbaijan, including using its own air force against Artsakh and the Republic of Armenia, deployed thousands of mercenaries and terrorists in Azerbaijan to fight against Artsakh. The fact of the presence of Turkey-backed terrorists in Azerbaijan is not questioned by any country, except Turkey and Azerbaijan.

Earlier today, President of Artsakh Arayik Harutyunyan called on an international coalition against the Turkey-backed terrorism.
