During the telephone conversation, the two leaders reviewed the compliance with statements between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia on November 9, 2020, and January 11, 2021, and the problems on the common border between the two Caucasian nations, the Kremlin noted.
On the subject, Putin and Pashinian agreed to maintain new contacts at different levels.
The conflict in the vicinity of Nagorno-Karabakh intensified on September 27, 2020, when clashes between forces from both countries occurred until November 9.
At the time, Presidents Vladimir Putin (Russia) and Ilham Aliyev (Azerbaijan); and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian signed a joint declaration on the total cessation of hostilities in the region.
The border clashes between Baku and Erevan escalated on May 12, when the Armenian Defense Ministry denounced that its Azerbaijani counterpart had tried to carry out ‘certain works’ in one of the border areas in the Siunik region to ‘adjust the border’.
