Armenia, Karabakh seek to harmonize peace efforts

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan and Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) State Minister Artak Beglaryan on Friday, June 24 discussed the situation in Artsakh due to the Azerbaijani aggression and the process of overcoming post-war humanitarian issues.

Mirzoyan and Beglaryan weighed in on the efforts made in international forums to raise the rights of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh, including the forcibly displaced population, and to solve the problems they face. The two stressed the need for unhindered involvement of international humanitarian organizations on the ground in order to fully address the humanitarian consequences of the war.

They also exchanged views on the prospects for a peaceful and just settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, emphasizing the importance of harmonizing the efforts of Armenia and Artsakh.

The Second Karabakh war lasted 44 days and ended when Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev signed a ceasefire statement on November 9, 2020. Under the deal, the Armenian side returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
