Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Sept. 13 he had discussed with his Azeri counterpart "Armenian provocations" on the border with Azerbaijan and called on Armenia to focus on peace negotiations.
Clashes have erupted between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, Russian news agencies reported early on Tuesday, in a resumption of decades-old hostilities linked to the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Baku and Yerevan have blamed each other for the flare-up, which comes after Azerbaijan re-established full control over the territory in a six-week conflict in 2020. Turkey is a close ally of Azerbaijan.
"Armenia should cease its provocations and focus on peace negotiations and cooperation with Azerbaijan," Çavuşoğlu said on Twitter after talks with Azerbaijan Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov.
