After the meeting in Sochi, President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin gifted leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan Nikol Pashinyan and Ilham Aliyev olive branches.

“The meeting was helpful and was held at the right time. We signed a statement on the results of our meeting. On my left side, you see the gift for our Armenian and Azerbaijani friends — an olive branch, which symbolizes peace and prosperity.
