The agreement calls on the Armenian armed forces to cede control of certain areas outside the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh, including the Eastern District of Agdam. This region has a strong symbolic weight for Azerbaijan, because its capital, also called Agdam, was ransacked in depth and the only building that remained intact is the city`s mosque. Under the agreement, the two belligerents undertook to exchange prisoners of war and the dead. In addition, the Armenian armed forces are expected to withdraw from the territories occupied by Armenia around Nagorno-Karabakh by 1 December. A Russian peacekeeping force of about 2,000 Russian ground forces is expected to be deployed in the region for at least five years, with one of its tasks being the protection of the Lachin corridor linking Armenia to the Nagorno-Karabakh region. In addition, Armenia pledged to “guarantee” the safe passage between the Azerbaijani mainland and its enclave of Nachitchevan by a land strip in the Armenian province of Syunik. The Russian FSB border forces would exercise control over transport communications.

Russia on Tuesday denied that Turkish peacekeepers were likely to be sent to Nagorno-Karabakh, described by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.

Armenian opposition parties have called on the government to revoke the agreement. And the country`s president, Armen Sarkisian, distanced himself from the deal, said he learned about the negotiations from the media and called for “political consultations” to find a way out of the crisis. The ceasefire agreement 9 reached in November is a typical example: the agreement was brokered by Russia and the next day, Russian peacekeepers began sending to the conflict zone to monitor an access road and oversee the handover of land. Azerbaijan has insisted that it has the right to also invite Turkish peacekeeping forces, which increases the possibility that soldiers from both countries will operate nearby along a tense front line. The Nagorno-Karabakh Ceasefire Agreement 2020 is a ceasefire agreement that ended the Nagorno-Karabakh war in 2020. Signed on November 9 by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it ended all hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region from 00:00, November 10, 2020, Moscow time. [1] [2] The President of the self-proclaimed Republic of Arzach, Arayik Harutyunyan, also agreed to an end to hostilities. [3] Nearly 2,000 Russian armed forces will patrol for at least five years the line between the regions under Azerbaijani and Armenian control under the agreement negotiated by President Vladimir V. .
