Talks between Erdogan and Putin over Karabakh were secret



Negotiations of the presidents of Russia and Turkey on the Karabakh conflict were of a secret nature and passed behind closed doors. In any case, there were no official statements on this issue after the meeting of the two presidents.

The fact that at negotiations in Sochi the leaders of the two countries intended to discuss the topic of the Karabakh conflict became known from Recep Tayyip Erdogan himself. Moreover, the Turkish leader announced this twice.

'We will meet with Vladimir Putin and discuss this issue, because if he tackles this issue, it will be much easier to achieve results,' the Turkish leader said in a conversation with journalists on November 2.

For the second time, President Erdogan announced talks on Karabakh a few hours before the meeting with Vladimir Putin at the airport. The president of Turkey added that this issue will be discussed during the tete-a-tete talks.

Negotiations between Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan lasted more than 4 hours. According to the Spokesman of the Russian leader, Dmitry Peskov, the presidents talked one on one for two - two and a half hours. After that, negotiations were held in an expanded format, in which delegations participated.

'There were much more complicated negotiations, which, naturally, are not subject to disclosure,' Peskov told journalists after the meeting.

The Karabakh conflict, with a high degree of probability, was discussed by Putin and Erdogan behind closed doors. The fact that this topic was included in the agenda of the talks is unquestionable. The Turkish leader announced this twice. This is indirectly confirmed by Putin's press-secretary. It remains to wait until either side sheds light on the details of these negotiations.
