Erdogan blames Armenia for clashes with Azerbaijan
Stay tuned with 24 News HD Android App
Armenia on Wednesday said Azerbaijan's forces were occupying 10 square kilometres (almost four square miles) of its territory as result of border clashes that have killed dozens of soldiers on both sides.
The deal allowed Azerbaijan to take control of large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh it had lost in a 1990s war.
"It will, of course, have consequences for Armenia, which did not fulfil the agreement's conditions and constantly displayed an aggressive attitude."
The toll could still mount due to reports of continuing exchanges of fire.
Turkey is Azerbaijan's main weapons supplier and a backer of Baku's cause on the diplomatic stage.
The violence threatens to derail a nascent effort by Turkey and Armenia to strike a reconciliation agreement that could bolster trade and travel between the neighbouring states.
Turkey's relations with Armenia -- which relies on diplomatic and military backing from Russia -- have been effectively frozen because of Ankara's refusal to recognise the genocide of Armenians by the Ottomans during World War I.
Erdogan is expected to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at a regional summit in Uzbekistan on Friday.
