Russia has stepped up efforts to end the ongoing war between Armenia and Azerbaijan from September 27. President Vladimir Putin said Russia’s intervention led to a peace deal between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Putin also said that Russian peacekeeping forces will be swarmed into the region to maintain peacekeeping in the war-torn region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Russian peacekeepers will be assigned to disputed area
Putin said that we hope that this agreement will establish the necessary conditions for a lasting and complete truce in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Armenia and Azerbaijan have also confirmed this peace agreement. After which, it is believed that the end of the fight which has lasted for 44 days is near.
Armenia and Azerbaijan ratified the treaty
Armenian Prime Minister Nicholas Pashinyan announced on social media on Tuesday that he had reached a peace agreement with Azerbaijan as part of Russian mediation. Soon after, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev also confirmed this. Araik Harutuyan, head of the Nagorno-Karbakh region, also announced that he had signed a peace agreement.
Armenian Prime Minister said – We did not accept defeat
Armenian Prime Minister Nicholas said the decision was based on a thorough analysis of the war situation and discussions with top experts in the region. He added that it’s not a win but also a loss, as long as you don’t see yourself as a loser. We will never consider ourselves defeated and it will be a new beginning of our era of national unity and rebirth.
The Azerbaijani army leads the war
The Azerbaijani army inflicted heavy losses on Armenia on the basis of Turkish and Israeli weapons. According to reports, the town of Shushi, located near Stepanacart, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, was captured by the Azerbaijani army. Since then, Stepanacert’s safety in the Armenian army has grown in concern.
What is the history of this struggle
Armenia and Azerbaijan were liberated between 1918 and 1921. Even at the time of independence, the two countries had no special friendship due to the border dispute. After the end of the First World War, a third of these two countries separated the Transcaucasian Federation. Which is now known as Georgia. These three countries joined the Soviet Union in 1922. During this time the great Russian leader Joseph Stalin gave part of Azerbaijan (Nagorno-Karabakh) to Armenia. This part was traditionally under the occupation of Azerbaijan but the people who lived there were of Armenian origin.
