Erdogan accuses US, Russia and France of arming Armenia

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the United States, Russia and France of providing military support to Armenia in its armed conflict with Azerbaijan over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Speaking in Sirnak in south-eastern Turkey, Erdogan reiterated his support for Azerbaijan, saying he was “praying” the country could succeed in the conflict by ousting the Armenians from “occupied territory.”

The two ex-Soviet republics have been fighting for decades for the mountainous region with around 145,000 inhabitants.

Christian Nagorno-Karabakh is controlled by Armenia, but under international law it belongs to the Muslim-majority nation of Azerbaijan.
