Turkey, Russia to begin monitoring Nagorno-Karabakh truce

first_imgANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey’s defense minister says a joint Turkish-Russian observation center to monitor a cease-fire deal between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh will become operational on Saturday. Hulusi Akar said in a statement on Friday that a Turkish general and 38 personnel, would be on duty at the center which aims to monitor possible violations of the truce. He did not provide further information. Turkey and Russia agreed to form an observation center shortly after the cease-fire agreement, reached in November, ended six weeks of intense fighting between Azerbaijan and Armenia. Russia, which brokered the cease-fire, has separately deployed nearly 2,000 peacekeepers for at least five years to monitor the agreement.last_img read more

Week 2 of training camp: Notes and observations from Monday’s practice

first_img Published on August 12, 2013 at 11:20 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+ Week 2 of training camp officially got underway Monday at 10:10 a.m. with Syracuse’s final practice at Manley Field House before it leaves for Fort Drum, N.Y. It was another pleasant day — as most of the weekend has been in Syracuse — with a more revealing open session of practice than Saturday’s.***Without a doubt the most intriguing moment of practice came when Terrel Hunt tossed a screen pass to Ashton Broyld on the right side of the field. The former quarterback set his feet and fired a pass across the field to running back Prince-Tyson Gulley, who was running down the left sideline. The pass hit Gulley’s hands, but fell incomplete. Still, it’s a wrinkle to keep in mind for the Orange offense, which now features two former quarterbacks in its wide receiver corps after John Kinder changed positions earlier this summer.***Cornerback Keon Lyn spent several minutes at the beginning of practice riding on a stationary bike. He participated in practice for most of the 40 minutes that were open to the media, but was walking with a noticeable limp.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe secondary once again worked on blitz packages, rotating an incredible depth of cornerbacks and safeties behind the front seven.***Meanwhile, the offense was working on the hurry up. Hunt quarterbacked the first team with running back Broyld split out wide. Drew Allen took snaps for the second team, though Jarrod West served as his top wide receiver.Hunt was a bit sloppy at first, but ultimately finished his drive with a touchdown strike to wide receiver Jeremiah Kobena over the top of an imaginary defense.***The kickers continued to look like one of the strongest positions on the team. Ross Krautman and Ryan Norton took turns booting field goals from about 40 yards out on either hash mark, nailing each one.Krautman eventually stepped out to the 50-plus-yard range — it would’ve been the longest field goal the media has had the opportunity to see. Instead, Krautman took a direct snap and dropped a pooch punt into the right corner that dribbled out of bounds around the 15-yard line. For now, it seems Krautman’s range is about 45 yards, but there’s still time to stretch it. Commentslast_img read more
