Moments ago, Artsakh President Arayik Harutyunyan in a Facebook post addressed the statement that was signed between the President’s of Armenia, Azerbaijan & Russia to end the war in Artsakh.
Today we spent the whole day with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan discussing our actions aimed at ending the hostilities.
I had discussions beforehand with the National Assembly of the Republic of Azerbaijan and received the consent of the overwhelming majority of the deputies. Given the current dire situation, in order to avoid further heavy casualties and the complete loss of Artsakh, I agreed to end the war an hour earlier. As for the signed trilateral statement, I will talk about it in detail later.
I extend my deepest condolences and pride to the relatives of our martyrs and to all the people. We will still have time to have a dialogue with the relatives of the fallen heroes and our military about what to do. I pay tribute to all the people who made even a small contribution to the hard work of defending the Homeland.
