The countries have agreed on prisoner exchange. It will also include those who were captured before the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh
This was told by the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan.
“The most important task is the return of prisoners. I want to say that there has been some progress. In fact, we have agreed on the principle of exchanging “all for all””, – Pashinyan said.
Pashinyan stressed that besides the exchange of prisoners, there is another important problem – the search for missing people. In early November, more than 600 military bodies were removed from the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, 500 of which are now being identified.
