“In the Minsk Group, there are countries that are far from this region and have nothing to do with it. There must be countries that have power and influence. Turkey is already a member of the Minsk Group, Why not participate in the negotiations? In the West, Turkey’s promise is great. What issue was solved without Turkey? In Syria, In Libya… Turkey must be in the solution of this problem,” he said.
