French President Emmanuel Macron said that 300 Syrian militants were deployed to Baku. The redeployment was carried out through the Turkish city of Gaziantep.
“I can confirm that, according to our information, 300 militants left Syria to arrive in Baku through Gaziantep. These militants have been identified and come from a jihadist group operating in the Aleppo region,” the French leader said.
Macron also added that he has information about another 300 militants who are just preparing to leave for Azerbaijan.
The day before, the President said that Paris has facts indicating that pro-Turkish militants from Syria were sent to Nagorno-Karabakh to participate in hostilities. “This is a very serious and new factor. We will discuss this, including here at the talks in EU, “Macron said in Brussels ahead of the start of the European summit.
In addition, Macron promised to send a plane to Karabakh for French journalists who were injured during the strikes of the Azerbaijani military.
