Russian President Vladimir Putin said he hopes Azerbaijan and Armenia will sign a peace treaty, according to TASS.

Speaking at the CSTO summit in Yerevan, Putin positively assessed the results of his trilateral meeting with the Azerbaijani and Armenian leaders that took place in Sochi at the end of October, and also noted that the talks created a good basis for future compromises on fundamental issues.

The president said that the joint statement reaffirmed the commitment to the top-level tripartite agreements reached in 2020 and 2021. He stressed that “only the consistent implementation of these agreements on border delimitation, unblocking transport communications, solving humanitarian problems” will help normalize relations between the countries.

“We hope that this will eventually allow to conclude a peace treaty between Yerevan and Baku,” Putin added.
