Sochi Joint Statement: No Mention of Karabakh Status

The leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan issued the following joint statement following today’s trilateral meeting in Sochi.

We, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia N.V.Pashinyan, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan I.H. Aliyev, President of the Russian Federation V.V.Putin, met on November 26 in Sochi and discussed the implementation process of the declaration of November 9, 2020 on the complete ceasefire and termination of all types of military operations in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and the implementation process of the January 11, 2021 statement on unblocking all economic and transport infrastructures of the region.

We reaffirmed commitment to the further and consistent implementation and unconditional observance of all the provisions of the November 9, 2020 declaration and January 11, 2021 statement for the benefit of the stability, security and economic development of the South Caucasus. We agreed to intensify joint efforts aimed at the immediate solution of the remaining issues arising from November 9, 2020 and January 11, 2021 statements.

We mentioned the significant contribution of the Russian peacekeeping mission in stabilizing the situation and ensuring security in the region.

We agreed to take steps to increase the level of stability and security on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border, to push the process of establishment of a bilateral commission with the advisory participation of the Russian Federation based on the application of the sides, on delimitation, and afterwards demarcation, of the state border between the Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan.

We highly appreciated the activity of the trilateral working group on unblocking all economic and transport communications of the region, established in accordance with the January 11, 2021 statement under the joint chairmanship of the Deputy Prime Ministers of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Republic of Armenia and the Russian Federation. We stressed the need to launch specific programs as soon as possible, aimed at identifying the economic potential of the region.

The Russian Federation will continue to provide the necessary assistance for normalizing relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia, building an atmosphere of trust between the Azerbaijani and Armenian peoples, and establishing good-neighborly relations in the region.

We are dealing with cowered Prime Minister. Pashinyan cares about himself only. Pashinyan biggest problem is inability to converse intelligently at same level as Putin. Pashinyan is becoming useless and good for nothing Prime Minister.

Of course there is no mention of any status for Karabakh as Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that there will NEVER BE ANY SPECIAL STATUS FOR KARABAKH! Azerbaijan has made it perfectly clear that they are prepared to fight to the last Armenian to prevent any special status and they have proved that they are more than capable of doing it. The world recognises that Karabakh is part of Azerbaijan and the separatists currently infesting the area only have 2 choices. They can become Azerbaijan citizens or they can leave with the Russians in a couple of years.
