Conversation with Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan

June 9, 2023, Sochi

After the meeting with the heads of government of the CIS and EAEU countries, Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan held a separate conversation.

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Pashinyan,

We meet regularly, and I am very happy to have this opportunity to talk once again on the sidelines of today’s event about the current situation on a bilateral plane and on the regional aspects that we discussed in such detail during our previous meeting in Moscow.

I am very happy to see you.

Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan: Thank you, Mr Putin.

To begin with, I would like to congratulate you on the upcoming holiday – Russia Day – and wish well-being to the Russian Federation.

Yes, indeed, we meet regularly and discuss a broad range of issues. Today, we will also discuss both bilateral and regional matters.

I believe that today we will also review the situation in the Russian peacekeeper zone of responsibility in Nagorno-Karabakh. Unfortunately, the humanitarian situation remains difficult there. Nagorno-Karabakh has had no gas or electricity for months. The situation in the Lachin corridor remains strained. By the way, I must emphasise that food is now delivered to Nagorno-Karabakh with the help of the Russian peacekeepers, but this is a limited amount of food. Overall, the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh continues, and this is also a very important issue. I am sure we will discuss it today.

Vladimir Putin: Certainly.
