Armenia says signs deal to end war with Azerbaijan and Russia

YEREVAN/BAKU (Reuters) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said he has signed a deal with the leaders of Azerbaijan and Russia to end the military conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region on Tuesday morning after more than a month of bloodshed.

The declaration has followed six weeks of heavy fighting and advancement by the Azerbaijan's forces. Baku said on Monday it had seized dozens more settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh, a day after proclaiming victory in the battle for the enclave's strategically positioned second-largest city.

Russian state agencies confirmed the news. There was no official immediate reaction from Baku.

"The decision is made basing on the deep analyses of the combat situation and in discussion with best experts of the field," Pashinyan said on social media.

"This is not a victory but there is not defeat until you consider yourself defeated. We will never consider ourselves defeated and this shall become a new start of an era of our national unity and rebirth."
