Russian side believes
Russian side believes that the most important thing at the moment is that all parties to the Naka conflict stop thinking of confrontation.
Lavrov said that only by stopping the confrontational mindset can we truly achieve a ceasefire in the Naka region and stop attacks on civilian targets.
The realization of a ceasefire in the Naka region is the main content of the joint statement
issued by the presidents of the three countries of Russia, the United States and
France on the conflict in the Naka region on October 1.
On September 27, a new round of conflict broke out in Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Naka region.
Both sides accused each other of violating the previously reached ceasefire agreement
and taking the lead in launching a military offensive.
On October 10, the foreign ministers of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia issued a statement in
Moscow stating that Azerbaijan and Armenia reached an agreement on a ceasefire in the Naka region.
The parties agreed to a ceasefire in the Naka region from 12:00 on October 10, local time.
However, after the ceasefire agreement came into effect, the Aya-Yaah parties
continued to accuse each other of violating the agreement to launch attacks.
The Naka region is located in southwestern Azerbaijan, and its residents are mostly Armenians.
After the disintegration of the Soviet Union, war broke out between
Azerbaijan and Armenia over the ownership of the Naka region.
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.
