ANKARA (Sputnik) — Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called shelling of Azerbaijani cities by Armenia amid the escalation of tension in conflict-torn Nagorno-Karabakh region war crimes, adding that those responsible will be held accountable.
«Armenia still commits war crimes&massacres civilians. Kills innocent people incl. children. Silence against this atrocity equals sharing responsibility of these murders. Those who have no humanity will be held accountable for their crimes. Will always stand by brotherly #Azerbaijan», Cavusoglu wrote on Twitter.
