 New era is beginning in the Caucasus, says Turkey

The Azerbaijani Army liberated Kalbajar, which had been under occupation for 27 years, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin tweeted.

"Karabakh is regaining its true identity. A new era is beginning in the Caucasus. Turkey will continue to play an active role in the new history of the Caucasus," Kalin said in his tweet.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is introduced at 00:00 hours (Moscow time) on November 10.

Under the agreement, a total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.

Finally, on 1 December, Armenia will hand over the Lachin district.
