No agreement has been reached regarding the deployment of a Turkish peacekeeping contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh, the Kremlin spokesman says.
That's according to RIA Novosti quoting Dmitry Peskov as saying.
Meanwhile, Russian peacekeepers are already deploying in the area following a ceasefire deal signed between Azerbaijan, Armenia, and Russia to stop hostilities that re-erupted in the contested region of Nagorno-Karabakh on September 27.
"The arrival of Turkish soldiers was never agreed. Setting up a monitoring center on the Azerbaijani territory was discussed. This is in Azerbaijan, and this is the subject of a separate agreement," Peskov explained.
Earlier, the presidents of Azerbaijan and Turkey discussed creating a joint Russian-Turkish peacekeeping center, Reuters reported citing Sputnik Azerbaijan.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Monday night said he had signed an agreement with Azerbaijan and Russia to end the war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Pashinyan claimed he had no choice but to sign the deal to bring hostilities to a halt.
A joint peacekeeping mission of Russia and Turkey will be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh after hostilities cease.
Residents of Yerevan, protesting against the move to end the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, broke through the police cordon and burst into the Armenian Government building.
The latest escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh started on September 27.

On November 9, Azerbaijan downed a Russian Mi-24 military helicopter over Armenia, close to the border, killing two pilots and injuring one.
Baku immediately apologized for what it said was a mistake, and offered Russia compensation.
