Azerbaijani, Armenian delegations meet in Moscow to resolve border issue

A meeting of the commission to determine the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, former Soviet republics, was held in Moscow, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

The meeting followed an agreement reached last year by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

The delegations were chaired by deputy prime ministers of the three countries.

“The Russian delegation expressed its readiness to continue to provide consultation and technical assistance in the negotiations between the delegations of Azerbaijan and Armenia on the delimitation of state borders between the two countries, increasing the level of stability and security in the border region,” the ministry added.

It was reported that the date of the new meeting will also be decided through diplomatic channels.

After a Russia-brokered deal ended the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan in 2020, the three countries agreed to develop economic ties and infrastructure for the benefit of the entire region.

During the war, Azerbaijan liberated several cities and nearly 300 settlements and villages in the Nagorno-Karabakh region that had been occupied by Armenia for nearly three decades.
