Baku, Yerevan agree to Ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh after negotiations in Moscow

[ Update: 10-10 20, 13:56 EST… This might be the shortest ceasefire in history. The Azeris attacked this morning, presenting a showdown between Putin and Erdogan as who Baku feels is the most important power to have supporting it.

The EU, as usual, is in the caboose on this train, preferring to watching instead of doing…JD ]

[ Editor’s Note: Well the rainbow is going to come over Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia when they wake up in the morning. Families will no longer have to fear getting the bad news that they have lost a loved one.

There will be those who do not want the fighting to stop; and when your sleeper agents are activated to stir things back up with a car bombing or a false flag attack, which you can sub out to the Israelis if you have a fat wallet.

Turkey is the big loser, along with the EU, because it sat on its hands doing nothing and left Russia to clean up the mess.

Let us cross our fingers that the ceasefire holds

Merkel seems to be running her own little war on Putin by refusing to let Russian diplomats meet with the alleged poisoned opposition leader whose influence in Russia is insignificant, and hence no motive for the Russian government to poison him and create a big international incident.

Why do I think this? That’s easy. It’s because Putin does not do stupid. He never has. All the Intel agencies know that this staged poisoning was a false flag operation by a hostile Intel agency.

Would the Brits stick their necks out for a “two fer” when they still have the ex-Russian spy and his daughter on ice so the press cannot talk to them about why anyone would want to poison them in a hugely public way, other than some crazy people in British Intel?

It’s a sad day when we have to watch Western Intel agencies attacking us with these contrived incidents, and then be able to hide behind their immunity screen until they can come up with a new plan.

I am not saying all of them do it. That would be hugely unfair. But too many do, and it does not go unnoticed, especially those with really good sources… Jim W. Dean ]

Amid the ongoing conflict in the unrecognized republic of Nagorno-Karabakh, the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan have been invited to Moscow to hold negotiations regarding a ceasefire and exchange of prisoners and the bodies of those killed.

After 10 hours of negotiations in Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated that Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh from 10 October in order to exchange of prisoners and bodies of the killed.

“A ceasefire has been announced, beginning 12:00 on 10 October, 2020, for humanitarian purposes for the exchange of prisoners of war and other detainees, and bodies of the dead, to be mediated in accordance with the criteria of the International Committee of the Red Cross”, the statement said.

According to the statement, Baku and Yerevan agreed to start “substantive” talks on Karabakh conflict.

“The Republic of Azerbaijan, the Republic of Armenia, with the mediation of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, on the basis of the basic principles of the settlement, begin substantive negotiations with the aim of achieving a peaceful settlement as soon as possible”, Lavrov stated.

The joint statement, cited by Lavrov, said that specific parametres of ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh will be agreed on separately. The statement also said that sides committed to keeping formats of talks on Karabakh unchanged.

Starting on 9 October, the trilateral talks have lasted for over 10 hours, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov negotiating ceasefire in Karabakh with his counterparts from Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The conflict in the unrecognized republic saw escalation on 27 September, with both Baku and Yerevan accusing each other of sparking military hostilities.

The international community, including Russia, France, the US and the UN, has been calling for ceasefire between the sides and urging them to return to OSCE-mediated negotiations to settle the conflict.

  1. I studied all WW 2 Crimes , initiated by the Khazar mafia white Jews , I observe the media, alleging that the Jews were victim of WW2 which was initiated by their fellow Zions ! They were not Victim , but perpetrator of all War crimes , concentration camps, wall construction, GULAG republic establishment, like DDR and SU !
    I am Witnessing live that the same KHM cabals are killing around in Syria Azerbaijani Kurdistan Yemen ,,, !

    • Thank you, I approve your remark, I was going to write mine exactly in this sense. This planet cannot experience peace and development as long as the Jewish banking and political nuisance is not removed … by all means, as mossad uses to say.

  2. Seems the ceasefire lasted only a few minutes both Armenia and Azerbaijan are blaming each other. It seems that Armenia has upped the ante since but that could be propaganda. According to southfront.org Armenia has sent drones and scud missiles into Azerbaijan but the sources from which this information comes from could be regarded as questionable coming from government sources. Azerbaijan has retaliated by destroying AD systems. It is also noted that Azerbaijan claimed Armenian missiles were used against it in civilian areas but it seems the missiles in question are Israeli made munitions and do not match anything Armenia has in its arsenal.

  3. Jim, this was an excellent summary of the situation in the Caucasus. Left out, though, is the ongoing relationship between Azerbaijan and Israel. Both nations see Iran as an existential threat. Also, Israel imports 40% of its oil from Azerbaijan.

    The Zionist part of the Anglo-Zionist Empire would like nothing better than increased pressure on Iran by reopening the Sitalchay airbase in Azerbaijan so that when the “big one” comes, Israel can operate from a base just 500 km from the Iranian border. The “big one” of course is the false-flag attack on the USA that will be blamed on Iran, just like 9/11 was blamed on the Arabs. That horrible event led to all the f-ing wars of this century, all for Israel. This war will almost certainly involve Russia and might even be the “October surprise” that we’ve been waiting for here in the USA, the one that will take the heat off Donald Trump (and Netayahu) before the November elections. Yes, pure speculation, but sadly it’s happened before. It could happen again.

    • Yes. And it is not a joke to have such hot spot so close to my region (Nothern Caucasus). So, my country must always pay greatest attention to the neighborhood. Even using strict methods if smb doesn’t want to sit at the table of negotiations. Sometimes it is useful to kick the ass. Because some of ex-USSR republics start to behave themself badly. By my personal opinion – it is Armenia, which we have to bring to reality first. Last years they became strange and turned into a pitiful burden for Russia.

    • Iran has tried to have good relations with everyone in the region, Israel, not so much. Israel is actually the major player in this conflict, not just because they are a black market arms dealer and are stoking conflicts everywhere, but because Israel wants a foothold on the Iranian border in addition to wanting to destabilize and fan the flames of Azeri separatism, just like they’ve been doing with the Kurds.
