Russia has deployed 2,000 of its blue helmets to the borders of the two countries
Most of the 105 Armenian soldiers were killed in the clash
The decades-long struggle for the Nagorno-Karabakh region in Armenia and Azerbaijan
Tbilisi. A senior Armenian official said late Wednesday that a peace deal with Azerbaijan had been reached after two days of violence linked to a decades-old dispute between former Soviet states in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. However, Azerbaijan has yet to share a statement on the deal, in which at least 50 soldiers were killed in the violent clashes. According to Reuters, Russia, believed to be the main diplomatic force in the region, has reached an agreement after the fierce confrontation between the two countries, which has ended the fight for the time being. Russia has also deployed 2,000 of its blue helmets to the borders of the two countries to maintain peace. Russian media call it the second Karabakh war, in which more than 150 soldiers died.
According to Russian news agencies, the Secretary of the Armenian Security Council, Armen Grigoryan, thanked the international community for its participation in the agreement. Grigorian said the ceasefire had been in effect for several hours and firing had also ceased in border areas. However, after the deal, both sides blame each other for the latest clash. The Armenian army suffered the most from the violent confrontation, of which 105 soldiers were killed in the crossfire. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said 105 Armenian soldiers have been killed since the violence erupted this week. Meanwhile, Azerbaijan reported 50 military deaths on the first day of fighting.
Russia pats him on the back
Russia is pleased to have concluded an agreement between the two countries. Grigory Karsin, a senior official in Russia’s upper house of parliament, said Russian diplomatic efforts had made the ceasefire possible. He added that Russian President Vladimir Putin had spoken to both countries. At the same time, the necessary steps have also been taken regarding the peace agreement. Let us tell you that Armenia and Azerbaijan have been fighting for decades over the Nagorno-Karabakh region, which borders Azerbaijan, but there are majority residents in Armenia.
