Turkey says French solidarity with Armenia supports occupation in Azerbaijan

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday that French solidarity with Armenia amounted to supporting Armenian occupation in Azerbaijan.

He was speaking in an interview with state-run Anadolu news agency after French President Emmanuel Macron said Turkey’s “warlike” rhetoric was encouraging Baku to reconquer Nagorno-Karabakh, a breakaway region inside Azerbaijan but run by ethnic Armenians.
