According to the diplomat’s assessment, after the recent events in Artsakh, which he called “restoration of the territorial integrity of Baku”, the process of signing a peace agreement has become easier and the probability has increased .
It is worth noting that the Prime Minister of Eastern Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, announced today in the National Assembly that the three main principles of peace and regulation of relations with Azerbaijan have been agreed.

Since then, several rounds of negotiations have taken place between the parties at different levels.
