In the Caucasus conflict, Armenia needs to stop attacks targeting civilian settlements in violation of a new cease-fire and leave occupied Azerbaijani territories, Turkey’s national defense minister told his Russian counterpart in a Monday phone call, Yeni Safak reports.

Turkey’s Hulusi Akar and Russia’s Sergey Shoygu discussed Armenian attacks on Azerbaijan and ongoing developments in Libya and Idlib, northwestern Syria, said a Turkish Defense Ministry statement.

Stressing that Armenia needs to stop attacking civilian settlements in violation of the cease-fire and withdraw from occupied Azerbaijani territories, Akar added that Azerbaijan would not wait another 30 years for a resolution, said the statement.

A temporary humanitarian cease-fire was declared on Saturday, but it has been marred by Armenian violations, according to Azerbaijan.
