Putin sums up results of Karabakh war at CSTO summit
The events in Belarus, Nagorno-Karabakh region and Kyrgyzstan have complicated the situation in the area of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the CSTO summit on Wednesday.
Putin noted that the accords reached by Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia on settling the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh on November 9 are being consistently implemented.
"Russia is interested in the involvement of CSTO and CIS partners in humanitarian efforts on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict," the president added.
The Karabakh war ended on the night of November 9-10, 2020 with the victory of Azerbaijan. During the hostilities from September 27 to November 9, the Azerbaijani army liberated the Fizuli, Jebrail, Zangilan and Gubadli districts, parts of the Terter, Khojavend, Khojaly and Shusha districts, including the heart of Azerbaijani culture - the city of Shusha from the occupation forces of the Armenian Armed Forces. From November 10 to 30, the Armenian troops were withdrawn from the Aghdam, Kalbajar and Lachin regions. The territorial integrity of Azerbaijan was restored on December 1.
