Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan. Information about this is published on the website of the Russian government.
“The practical aspects of the implementation of the statement of the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan on Nagorno-Karabakh on November 9, 2020, as well as the agreements reached during the trilateral summit in Moscow on January 11, 2021 were discussed,” the statement says.
It is clarified that the conversation touched upon topical issues of Russian-Armenian cooperation.
Last week, on February 12, a regular meeting of the working group on Karabakh was held. Deputy Prime Ministers of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan Mher Grigoryan, Alexey Overchuk and Shahin Mustafayev held a working meeting on unblocking regional transport communications in a videoconference format.
The first meeting of the trilateral working group was held on January 30 in Moscow.
It should be reminded that in September last year, the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan escalated in Nagorno-Karabakh. In November, Baku and Yerevan, with the mediation of Moscow, signed an agreement on the cessation of hostilities and on the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in the region.
On January 11, following the talks in the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin with the head of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan signed a statement on the development of Nagorno-Karabakh, which suffered from hostilities.
