The deal was later confirmed by Azerbaijan and the Kremlin.
The signed trilateral statement will become a crucial point in the settlement of the conflict, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said in a televised online meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Aliyev said Turkish peacekeepers will be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Russia’s defence ministry said it had begun the deployment of 1,960 soldiers to act as peacekeepers along the frontline in Nagorno-Karabakh and in the corridor between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan said the decision was based on a deep analysis of the situation and discussions with experts.
