Russia is one of the countries with which Turkey has succeeded in building healthier ties. This is what Vice-President of Turkey Fuat Oktay said in an interview with CNNTurk.
“Russia is perhaps one of the countries with which Turkey has succeeded in establishing healthy dialogue amid the ongoing chaos, even though there are many issues that we can’t agree on. We may have problems, but there can be sectors in which we can work together. If anything changes in this regard, Turkey will sincerely announce that,” Oktay said, TASS reports.
In addition, Oktay reiterated the view that the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh can’t be settled without Turkey. “Russia tried to find a solution and lead negotiations with the leaders of the two countries, but it failed. The absence of Turkey around the negotiating table was a major omission. Aliyev has said there can’t be any solution without Turkey,” Oktay said and affirmed Ankara’s willingness to send soldiers to Azerbaijan to support the latter in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
