Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed to exchange prisoners after the end of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this.

The exchange of prisoners between the parties will take place in an "all for all" format, which, according to Pashinyan, is the most important task for Yerevan. The exchange will concern not only those who were taken prisoner in recent months, but also those who were captured earlier.

"The most important task is the return of prisoners. I want to say that there is some progress here. In fact, the principle "all for all "has been agreed. Mechanisms must be created. If new names become known in the future, there would be no problems with their exchange," said Nikol Pashinyan.

It is also reported that Armenia has taken out more than 600 bodies from Nagorno-Karabakh, more than 500 of which are undergoing the identification process.

Armenia and Azerbaijan signed an agreement on the evening of November 9. As a guarantee, about 1960 Russian peacekeepers with armored vehicles should be brought into the region for at least 5 years. In accordance with the trilateral agreement, the Aghdam region will be returned to Azerbaijan by November 20. Until November 15, Armenia returns the Kelbajar region, and until December 1 the Lachin region.

As you know, the escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh began on September 27, when the Azerbaijani side fired at settlements, as well as military units in Karabakh. Then the motorized rifle and tank subdivisions of the Azerbaijani army went on the offensive in the northern, southern and southeastern directions. The Armenian government has declared martial law in the country.
