Russian President Vladimir Putin said that following the talks on Monday in Sochi with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, a joint statement was agreed upon.
“Today we agreed on a joint statement. I must say frankly, not everything was agreed upon, some things had to be removed from the text previously worked out at the level of experts,” the Russian President said.
“Nevertheless, I agree with the general assessment that the meeting was useful, and this creates conditions for further steps towards resolving the situation as a whole,” Putin stressed.
The President of Russia said that the trilateral meeting lasted more than two hours.
