MP: Pashinyan, Putin, Aliyev discussed POW swap three hours in Moscow

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani President Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev spent a good part of their meeting in Moscow to discuss the exchange of prisoners of war, lawmaker Lilit Makunts from the ruling My Step bloc said Wednesday, January 13.

Makunts said the talks of the three leaders lasted 4 hours, of which three were dedicated to the issue of Armenian prisoners of war.

According to her, the issue of unblocking economic and transport communications in the region was also discussed in the Russian capital.

"The statement signed in Moscow two days ago does not have anything to do with humanitarian matters," Mankunts said, adding that the POW issue should not be manipulated..
