On November 3, local time, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov called on external participants in the Naka conflict to do everything possible to stop the transfer of mercenaries from the Middle East to the Naka region.
At present, the number of mercenaries in the region is close to 2,000. Lavrov emphasized that Russia is concerned about the international spread of the Naqqa conflict and the intervention of militants in the Middle East.
Russia has repeatedly called on external participants not to transfer mercenaries to the region. On October 27, Russian President Putin and Turkish President Erdogan discussed this issue during a telephone meeting.
Putin’s routine communication with the leaders of Azerbaijan and Armenia also involved this issue. Russia will continue to reiterate this position through various channels.
Previously, Naryshkin, director of the Russian Federation’s Foreign Intelligence Service, pointed out that according to the information currently held by the agency, a large number of international terrorist mercenaries from war-torn areas in the Middle East are pouring into the Naka conflict zone, with hundreds or even thousands.
Russian President’s Press Secretary Peskov once said that the presence of these militants in the fiercely warring area in Naka is a huge hidden danger, and Russia is deeply concerned about this.
