Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a Russia-brokered trilateral peace deal on November 10, 2020, to end the six-week war over Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region which along with seven adjacent districts came under the occupation of Armenian armed forces.
The Azerbaijani army declared a victory against the Armenian troops. The signed agreement obliged Armenia to withdraw its troops from the Azerbaijani lands that it has occupied since the early 1990s.
