Putin: Russia made landmark contribution to Karabakh settlement

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russia made a landmark contribution to ironing out the conflict around Nagorno-Karabakh, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday, June 23, TASS reports.

"With Russia’s landmark contribution, the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh was stopped," the Russian leader said in a video message to the participants and guests of the IX Moscow Conference on International Security posted on the Kremlin website on Wednesday.

Russian peacekeepers guarantee peace and security in the region and do a lot to improve humanitarian situation, demining territories and restoring social infrastructure, Putin noted.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev on November 9 signed a statement to end the war in Karabakh after almost 45 days. Under the deal, the Armenian side has returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
