Ladies and gentlemen,

After lengthy talks we approved the following document. I quote:

“In response to the Statement by President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin  and in accordance with the agreements reached by President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, the following steps have been agreed:

1. A humanitarian ceasefire is declared for 12 pm on October 10, 2020 to exchange prisoners of war and other detained persons, as well as the remains of the dead, in accordance with the criteria of the mediator, the International Committee of the Red Cross.

2. Specific parameters of the ceasefire will be agreed subsequently. 

3. The Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia are launching substantive talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs to reach a peace deal as soon as possible on the basis of core settlement principles.

4. The parties reaffirm that the format of the negotiating process is to remain unchanged.”

Thank you for your attention.  I hope you will provide comprehensive coverage of the outcome of our work today.
