Vladimir Putin Talks Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict with Nations’ Leaders Separately

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh military conflict in phone calls with Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on Nov. 1 and with Azeri President Ilham Aliyev on Nov. 2, the Kremlin said on Monday, as reported by Reuters.

“The issues of settling the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict have been discussed in detail,” the Kremlin said in a statement without elaborating.

The talks took place as fierce battles continued along the front line of a conflict that has killed at least 1,000 people, and possibly many more.

Nagorno-Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan but is populated and controlled by ethnic Armenians.
