The Iranian, Russian and Turkish presidents hold a trilateral meeting on the Syria crisis in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
The Wednesday talks between Hassan Rouhani, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan come as Iran, Russia and Turkey are acting as the guarantors of a ceasefire that took effect in Syria late last year.
Turkish President Recept Tayyip Erdogan has highlighted Russia’s role as the only world power capable of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) conflict.
According to Aydinlik, the Turkish leader also promised “to raise the issue if possible” at the upcoming summit in Sochi.
Erdogan earlier discussed the Armenian-Azerbaijani land dispute with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a recent meeting in the Russian resort.
“I told him that it would be better for Russia to be a more active role-player in the conflict settlement process. Highly respected Putin also shares that opinion, but he does not cherish great hopes due to the positions adopted by the two countries,” he said.
In a statement made earlier, Erdogan said that the Nagorno-Karabakh issue “is of equal importance for Turkey”
