Putin Regrets Continued Casualities In Karabakh
Russian President Vladmir Putin, during a televised talk today with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Sochi, said he regrets the continued spate of casualties in Nagorno Karabakh.
Aliyev and Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan are in Sochi today for talks with Putin on a number of issues stemming from the 2020 Artsakh war and the resulting November 9 2020 ceasefire tripartite statement.
Putin said that these issues must be resolved by the parties (Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan) that signed the November 9 statement, and stressed the positive role of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh.
Putin will hold a joint meeting with Pashinyan and Aliyev as well as private talks with the two.
