Conflict in Karabakh likely has ‘Turkish factor’ – Medvedev

Russian Prime Minister said that “Turkish factor” in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may be present, Sputnik News reports.

The “Turkish factor” in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict may be present, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday.

“There is a host of forces that are closely looking into the consequences of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict for the situation in the Middle East and on Russia… All conflicts at a given time may in one way or another be a factor in political decisions. So I do not rule out that there are factors that are influencing the conflict from abroad. You mentioned the Turkish factor. The Turkish factor probably exists, at least because Turkey has expressed its position,” Medvedev said.

“In any case, at the moment… the truce has been declared, and it is maintained. If there are shootings, they are of a single character,” Medvedev said.

It is better to keep the conflict, than to to try to quickly resolve it at the cost of human lives, Dmitry Medvedev said.

“It’s better to maintain the situation as it is, than to shed blood,” Medvedev said.
