What Is Agreement Between Armenia And Azerbaijan
Meanwhile, Armenian protesters angered by the deal stormed the government headquarters in Yerevan, AFP news agency reported. Several thousand people reportedly gathered in front of the government building, and a few hundred entered, ransacked offices and smashed windows. “We believe that the agreements reached will create the necessary conditions for a long-term and full-fledged settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh crisis on a fair basis and in the interest of the Armenian and Azerbaijani peoples,” Putin said. 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 area has a strong symbolic weight for Azerbaijan, as its capital, also called Agdam, was completely looted and the only building that remained intact is the city`s mosque. Even after the 1994 peace agreement, the region was marked by regular exchanges of fire. . . .
