In a rare meeting in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, both Caucasus countries agreed to work towards demarcating the border of the region of Nagorno Karabakh.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev met for about three hours.
In remarks after the meeting, Putin said the three leaders “reached agreement on a whole range of issues” which he considers “key.”
Both Aliyev and Pashinyan echoed Putin’s positive assessment. The Azerbaijani president said the conversation was “open” and “genuine,” and the Armenian prime minister called it “positive.”
Putin also held two separate bilateral meetings with Aliyev and Pashinyan on Friday, before and after the three-way talks.
