New Agreement In the Works Between Armenia and Azerbaijan

In a government session, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan confirmed that Armenia and Azerbaijan are close to an agreement. There are speculations that the final document will include territorial concessions. Part of the agreement was leaked yesterday but Pashinyan says there is more to it than the conditions. Pashinyan said his government is working to prevent the situation from spiraling out of control, and “to rule out any scenario of war or military conflict,” and “to get the representatives of the Azerbaijani armed forces to leave the territory of the Republic of Armenia.” The prime minister spoke on other issues including opening transport communications, the CSTO and a lasting settlement with Azerbaijan.
