Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed with the permanent members of the Security Council the work of Russian peacekeepers and humanitarian mission in Nagorno-Karabakh [(Artsakh)]. According to TASS, this was stated by Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for the Russian president.
"A talk was held on the humanitarian mission and the activities of Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh," he said. "In this context, the President informed the participants of the meeting about the telephone conversations he had with the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan."
On November 9, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a joint statement on a complete cessation of hostilities— which Azerbaijan had launched on September 27—in and around Artsakh. Accordingly, Russian peacekeepers are deployed in the region to monitor the implementation of the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities. But this statement also stipulates the handover of part of Artsakh lands to Azerbaijan.
