France demands Turkey to withdraw Syrian mercenaries from Karabakh

France expects evidence from Turkey of a real change in policy and, in particular, of the “withdrawal of Syrian mercenaries” from Nagorno-Karabakh.

This was stated by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

“During several days I could note some changes in the tone of statements by the Turkish authorities. But changes in speeches are not enough, we need actions, real evidence of policy changes,” Le Drian said at a meeting of the Commission on Foreign Affairs of the French National Assembly. – One of the actions we expect from Turkey is the withdrawal of Syrian mercenaries deployed at its initiative in Nagorno-Karabakh”.
