Mishustin and Pashinyan started their meeting in Yerevan

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and his Armenian counterpart Nikol Pashinyan started the meeting in Yerevan as part of the session of the Eurasian Interstate Council.

The conversation is held in a closed regime for the press.

Earlier, on Friday, a session of the Eurasian Interstate Council was held, during which the head of the Russian government stated the importance of ensuring an immediate cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh and transition to a diplomatic settlement.

“Russia is ready to contribute to that together with other OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs,” Mishustin said.

On the same day, Yerevan and Baku confirmed their participation in the negotiations on Karabakh to be held in Moscow.

The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh escalated on September 27. Baku and Yerevan, contesting the region’s ownership, laid the responsibility for escalating the conflict on each other.
