Latest Armenia-Azerbaijan peace talks ended in Moscow without progress

Before the meeting, the Kommersant newspaper reported, citing unnamed diplomatic sources, that the Kremlin was “counting on” the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan to sign an agreement on restoring transport connections between their countries, as well as to issue a joint statement.

In the end, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, President Ilham Aliyev and Vladimir Putin signed no such agreements, though Pashinyan’s office confirmed the three countries’ deputy PMs would meet next week to “continue work” on resolving transport matters.
