Armenia: Hope implementation of agreements will bring peace between Yerevan and Baku - Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed that the road to peace between Yerevan and Baku could only be achieved through implementing agreed deals, during his speech at the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) Council meeting in the Armenian capital on Wednesday. 

"Only through the consistent implementation of these agreements on border delimitation, the unblocking of transport communications, and the resolution of humanitarian issues can we achieve sustainable normalisation of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan. We hope that this will eventually lead to the signing of a peace treaty between Yerevan and Baku," he said.

Putin also stated that the situation in Afghanistan remained difficult, due to the 'infiltration by militants of various international terrorist organisations' as well as by the 'spread of extremist ideology'.

"We believe there is a great need for further close co-ordination within the CSTO on all key aspects of the Afghan issue. We need to continue to work closely with the competent services in order to identify the threats of terrorism, extremism and drug-related crime in a timely manner. Of course, we must neutralise those threats through joint special operations and operational activities," he said.



The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan flared up again on the border in September, with both sides accusing each other of shelling their positions.

Armenian Defence Ministry spokesperson Aram Torosyan claimed that the Azerbaijani military had used artillery and drones to attack the districts of Gegharkunik, Vayots Dzor and Syunik.

Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani Defence Ministry alleged that Armenian troops had mined border areas and shelled Azerbaijani positions in the settlements of Basarkechar, Istisu, Garakils and Turk in the Dashkesan, Kelbajar and Lachin districts.
