American reality TV celebrity Kim Kardashian West on Sept. 27 called on the United States to warn Turkey to stop sending arms and fighters to Baku amid the clashes between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
Kardashian also urged Azerbaijan to stop “all offensive uses of force” against the Armenian people.
The U.S. media personality, who is of Armenian descent, also called on Washington to “cut off” all military aid to Baku.
She also called on the international community to take ”political and diplomatic measures to prevent unnecessary escalation & tragedy."
Kardashian said that “Armenia has been the victim of unprovoked attacks by Azerbaijan," claiming that the attacks are accompanied by a “predictable disinformation campaign."
Both the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides accuse each other of igniting hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, which has been the subject of dispute between Yerevan and Baku since the late 1980s when the two nations were Soviet republics.
Also on Sept. 27, U.S. President Donald Trump said that Washington will "see if we can stop" the flare-up of tensions in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. In the meanwhile, the State Department warned that the involvement of any external party would be “deeply unhelpful and only exacerbate regional tensions.”Turkish gov't slams main opposition deputy for voicing claim that Turkey sent jihadists to Azerbaijan
