Leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia, Russia agree peace in Nagorno-Karabakh

After more than a month of intensive fighting in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh and three failed attempts to achieve a ceasefire, Azerbaijan and Armenia have managed to finally strike a deal under the Russian mediation aimed at stopping the armed confrontation. Late on Tuesday night, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced that he signed a statement to end hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh with Azeri President Ilham Aliyev and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I signed a statement with the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan on ending the Karabakh war since 01:00 (00:00 Moscow Time). The text of the published statement is inexpressibly painful for me personally and for our people. I made the decision after a deep analysis of the military situation and the assessment by people who know it better than anyone," he informed. Pashinyan did not share details of the agreements. Putin and Aliyev divulged more information.
