“A few days ago, the three Co-Chairs met with the Foreign Ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Paris. Everyone supported the agreement reached on November 9, 2020 by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikolai Pashinyan,” Lavrov said.
He added that progress in the activities of the Russian peacekeeping contingent in resolving a number of humanitarian issues was noted.
