December 8 According to a report by Russian satellite network, Russian President Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, and Russia briefed the German side of the actions of Russian peacekeeping forces and the efforts made to end hostilities.
Putin reportedly informed Merkel of the mediation efforts to end hostilities and the actions of Russian peacekeeping forces along the line of contact and the Lachin corridor at the request of Azerbaijan and Armenia.
The Croatian Palace pointed out that the unremitting implementation of the tripartite statements of the leaders of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia will contribute to the stability of the situation in the karabakh region.
The karabakh region is located in southwest Azerbaijan, and its residents are mostly ethnic Armenians.

In 1994, the two sides reached an agreement on a comprehensive ceasefire, but the two countries have been in a state of hostility over the Naqqa issue, and armed conflicts have occurred from time to time.
On September 27, 2020, a new round of conflict broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the karabakh region. On November 9, the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a statement declaring a complete ceasefire in the karabakh region from 00:00 Moscow time on the 10th. According to the statement, Azerbaijan and Armenia will exchange the remains of prisoners of war, other detainees and victims, and Russia will deploy peacekeepers in the karabakh region.
