Islamabad : Pakistan on Tuesday welcomed the deal signed between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia to end the military conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh region after more than a month of bloodshed.
A statement issued by the Foreign Office said Pakistan consistently supported resolution of the Nagorno-Karabagh dispute in accordance with international law and the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions.
“We welcome the recent announcement of cessation of hostilities by the relevant parties,” reads the press release. “The trilateral agreement facilitated by the Russian Federation offers a renewed opportunity for establishing peace in the South Caucasus region.”
Congratulating the government and “brotherly people” of Azerbaijain on the “liberation of their territories”, Islamabad hoped this will lead to an era of “stability and prosperity in the region and will pave way for the return of internally displaced persons to their ancestral lands.”
