2 min read

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has said that more than 5,000 people have died so far in the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Putin said in a meeting on Thursday that more than two thousand people have died from both sides. He also said that there is no need for military alliance between Russia and China but this idea cannot be denied in future.

On the other hand, Nagorno-Karabakh says that since September 27, 874 soldiers have been killed and 37 civilians have been killed. Meanwhile, Azerbaijan has said that 61 of its citizens have been killed and 291 injured. Azerbaijan has not given the number of soldiers killed. Amidst this fierce battle, Putin said that America will help Russia in resolving this dispute.

This statement of the Russian President has come at a time when in the war of Armenia and Azerbaijan, Turkey is now seen openly supporting Azerbaijan. Turkey, which wants to become a ‘Khalifa’ in Central Asia, has now announced that if the request comes from Azerbaijan, it is ready to send its army. Superpower Russia’s neighboring countries Armenia and Azerbaijan are fighting for occupation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and if Turkey joins it there will be a threat of Third World War.

Vice-President of Turkey Fout Oktay has said that if there is a request to send troops from Azerbaijan, then Turkey will not hesitate to give its troops and military support. However, he also said that no such request has come from Azerbaijan so far. Turkey gave its full support to Azerbaijan and alleged that Armenia is occupying the land of Baku.
