ANKARA, Turkey – Prime Min­ister Tansu Ciller will ask Par­liament to wage war if Armenia attacks Nakhichevan, an Azerbaijani enclave on the Turkish border, a newspaper reported Saturday. The army, meanwhile, said it was drawing up contingency plans.

The tide of the 5-year-old war be­tween Azerbaijan and Armenia, two former Soviet republics, has turned against the Azerbaijanis over the past year. Christian Arme­nian forces have routed muslim Azerbaijani troops and taken con­trol of the ethnic Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh in Azerbaijan and several surrounding Azerbaijani towns.
