MOSCOW, 8 Nov – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday held a telephone conversation with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov on the eve of the anniversary of the adoption of the trilateral statement by the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia on a complete ceasefire in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported that Lavrov had a telephone conversation with Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan.
“The ministers continued to exchange views on the eve of the anniversary of the adoption of the trilateral statement by the leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia on a complete ceasefire and all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on November 9, 2020,” the statement said.
The heads of the foreign affairs agencies also discussed topical issues of bilateral relations and the regional agenda.
At the end of September 2020, hostilities resumed in Nagorno-Karabakh, which became a continuation of the long-term conflict and led to casualties among the civilian population. The parties made several attempts to conclude a truce, but the tripartite agreement reached on the night of November 10 turned out to be successful. With the mediation of Moscow, Azerbaijan and Armenia agreed to completely cease fire and exchange prisoners and bodies of the dead. Yerevan also handed over Kelbajar, Lachin and Aghdam districts to Baku. In addition, Russian peacekeepers are stationed in the region.
