Pashinyan says he calls Putin on Lachin issue several times a day

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan had two telephone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday. According to him, during the talks they touched upon a number of issues related to the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

"Topics for discussion include issues related to settlements of the Lachin corridor, missing persons, search operations, the bodies of the dead, the exchange of prisoners, the deployment and delimitation of peacekeepers, as well as the unblocking of transport communications in the region," he wrote on his official Facebook page.

The Prime Minister also noted that such negotiations are carried out on a regular basis.

"Such discussions take place regularly, sometimes several times a day. We do not always disseminate information about these discussions, given their nature and frequency," Pashinyan added.

On November 9, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a joint statement on a complete ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh. The Russian leader said the Azerbaijani and Armenian sides would remain on the positions they hold and Russian peacekeepers would be deployed to the region. Besides, Armenia and Azerbaijan should carry out the exchange of prisoners of war and the bodies of those killed. Aghdam region will be returned to Azerbaijan before November 20, Kelbajar region - before November 15, Lachin region - before December 1. Later, Baku gave Yerevan postponement for troops withdrawal from Kelbajar until November 25.
