Meaning, myself, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, [Azerbaijani President] Ilham Aliyev and [Armenian Prime Minister Nikol] Pashinyan,” the Turkish leader said at a press conference in Istanbul aired by local TV channels before departing for New York.
I said, let’s get together and discuss the steps that need to be taken. As of now, we have received neither a positive nor a negative response to this proposal,” he added.
