Putin: Solving humanitarian topics to pave way for Azerbaijan-Armenia peace agreement
(MENAFN) Russian President Vladimir Putin uttered hope on Wednesday that Azerbaijan and Armenia's efforts to sign a deal on frontier delimitation and humanitarian subjects will pave the way for a peace agreement between them.
"Only through consistent implementation of agreements on the delimitation of borders, unblocking transport communications, and solving humanitarian problems, is it possible to achieve a stable normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
"We hope that this will eventually allow for the conclusion of a peace treaty between Yerevan and Baku," Putin announced at a regular meeting of the Collective Security Organization (CSTO) council in Armenia's capital Yerevan.
Replying to critical comments by Armenian Premier Nikol Pashinyan, who stated the CSTO's image had been dull for its failure to help Yerevan in its 2020 conflict against Baku, Putin declared that while the bloc had its issues, collaboration brings "visible practical benefits, helps to ensure the protection of national interests, sovereignty, and independence" of the member-countries.
