No agreement concerning deployment of Turkish peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh, says Kremlin

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Tuesday said there was no agreement about the deployment of Turkish peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh, after a ceasefire deal was signed in an effort to halt more than a month of bloodshed in the region.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that a centre to monitor the ceasefire, located outside Nagorno-Karabakh, was subject to a separate agreement.

The presidents of Azerbaijan and Turkey earlier on Tuesday discussed creating a joint Russian-Turkish peacekeeping centre, Sputnik Azerbaijan reported.
