The deal was announced after about six hours of talks between Putin and Erdogan in the Russian capital. ANKARA, 1 December. /TASS/. Turkey and Russia have reached an agreement on the establishment of a joint ceasefire monitoring center in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday. The meeting resulted in an agreement on a ceasefire in Idlib. On 27 September, further clashes broke out and the Armenian army continued its attacks against Azerbaijani civilians and forces, going so far as to violate humanitarian ceasefire agreements for 44 days. But the Syrian regime and its allies have firmly violated the terms of the agreement and launched frequent attacks inside the territory, where aggression is expressly prohibited. The three-point agreement, read by the foreign ministers of both countries, also called for the creation of a seven-mile (12 km) “security corridor” along the country`s crucial M4 highway, which Russian and Turkish forces would patrol at the end of next week. On November 10, the two countries signed a Russian-brokered agreement to end the fighting and work towards a comprehensive solution to the conflict. The deal would effectively preserve some of the territorial gains made by Russian-backed Syrian forces during a three-month offensive in Idlib, the country`s last rebel stronghold, while maintaining Turkey`s position in the region. “Negotiations on the technical details on the foundations and principles of the operation of a joint Turkish-Russian center are over. An agreement has been signed. The necessary work is underway so that the center can enter into operation as quickly as possible,” the statement reads.┬áThe fact that we are in compliance with the agreements brings hope for the future.

We are moving forward,” the official said on condition of anonymity.┬áThe agreement between Turkey and Russia does not prevent the US and the EU from supporting Turkey. Confidence-building measures, such as the use of air defence systems and the exchange of information, should be taken. Let`s not forget that more than 3 million civilians are still stranded in a small area of Idlib. The risk of irregular migration from the region persists. European countries should not give Russia the opportunity to use migrants as weapons against European democracies.
