Moscow to discuss future of Peacekeeping Force with Baku: Russia

After Azerbaijan's 24-hour military operation in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian armed separatists in the region announced that they had laid down their arms. This development in Karabakh led to the questioning of the presence of the Russian Peacekeeping Force personnel in the region to ensure an environment of non-conflict.

Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov answered questions about the future of the Russian Peacekeeping Force in Karabakh at the weekly press conference. Pointing out that Russian troops are de facto and legally present in Azerbaijani territory,Peskov stated that this is also known by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian.

"As for the regime of their further stay and all related methods, then, of course, this will be discussed with the Azerbaijani side," Peskov said.

Noting that Russia will continue its contacts with Armenia, Peskov noted that the redeployment of Russian forces was not discussed in the last telephone conversation between Pashinian and Russian President Vladimir Putin.


To the question journalists, "Will you recognize HAMAS as a terrorist organization like some other countries?" Peskov said, "We continue our contacts with the parties to the conflict. There are Russian citizens both there and elsewhere. For us, the fate of Russian citizens is our number one priority. Russia is carefully analyzing the situation. Russia maintains its position as a country that has the potential to participate in the settlement process," he added.

Peskov also spoke about Russia's role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"It is too early to talk about Russia's role in the real settlement because the conflict is in the hot war phase. The situation is alarming, potentially very dangerous, and dangerous, including with humanitarian consequences. We need to stop terrorist attacks. We need to stop the disproportionate use of force. We need to meet the minimum needs of the population in Gaza," Peskov added.
