The ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Party), Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) and Good Party (IP) accepted the bill, which will allow Turkish peacekeeping efforts in the aftermath of the recent Nagorno-Karabakh deal.

The mandate will allow Turkish troops to be stationed at a peacekeeping center for one year as part of an accord between Ankara and Moscow to monitor the implementation of the cease-fire, which locked in territorial gains by Azerbaijan.

President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan's government would determine the number of troops to be sent and it wasn't immediately clear how many the country planned to deploy.

Azerbaijan, Armenia exchange bodies of 200 fighters

Armenia and Azerbaijan have exchanged 200 bodies of those killed in fighting over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, Russian state media reported Tuesday, citing the Red Cross.

The bodies were exchanged in the presence of Russian peacekeeping troops, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross, Peter Maurer, was quoted as saying.

More than 1,000 people have been reported killed in the six-week flare-up between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Armenians sets fire to buildings in Agdam

Armenian troops set fire to a number of structures in Agdam while forces were withdrawing from the region, Anadolu News Agency reported Tuesday.

Footage from the region under Azerbaijan's control shows smoke rising from positions of Armenian troops. While leaving the region where there is no civilian population, fire was set to police stations, buildings and checkpoints the Agency said.

Agdam District will be handed over to Baku Nov. 20.

Relations between the former Soviet republics of Azerbaijan and Armenia have been tense since 1991 when the Armenian military occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Upper Karabakh, a territory recognized as part of Azerbaijan, and seven adjacent regions.

New clashes erupted Sept. 27 and Azerbaijani forces liberated several cities and nearly 300 settlements and villages from Armenian occupation.

On Nov. 10, the two countries signed a Russia-brokered agreement to end fighting and work toward a comprehensive resolution.
