Russian FM Sergey Lavrov called 'unacceptable' an attempt to question the Nagorno-Karabakh peace statement signed on November 9 by the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan in his visit to Armenia, Defence.az reports. 

Sergey Lavrov stated that the main focus was on the full and accurate implementation of the November 9 statement of the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, which includes the cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh region, peacekeeping missions and other issues.

"It was unanimously stated that attempts to question this statement not only within the country but also abroad are unacceptable", Lavrov added. 

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is introduced at 00:00 hours (Moscow time) on November 10.

Under the agreement, a total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.

According to the agreement, on November 15, Armenia must hand over the Kelbajar region which lies to the northwest of Nagorno-Karabakh, to Azerbaijan but Armenian asked for more time and it was extended until 25 November. On November 20, the Aghdam region was handed over to Azerbaijan. 

Finally, on 1 December, Armenia will hand over the Lachin District, over which the Lachin pass connecting Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia passes.
