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.

Earlier, the presidents of Azerbaijan and Turkey discussed creating a joint Russian-Turkish peacekeeping center, Reuters reported citing Sputnik Azerbaijan.
