In the first paragraph, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin state the following: "In order to strengthen peace, stability and security in the region in accordance with the statements of the leaders of the three countries of November 9, 2020 and January 11, 2021, a joint Commission to delimit the border between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia with its subsequent demarcation is being created."
