Earlier Saturday, Armenian President Armen Sargsyan headed to Moscow in a private visit, according to Sputnik news agency.
In an official statement, the head of the state’s press service said, “President Armen Sargsyan, left for a private visit to Russia’s capital Moscow on November 28.”
Sargsyan is scheduled to hold meetings with representatives of the Armenian community in Russia, to discuss the situation in his country and Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the statement reported.
It is worth mentioning that, earlier this month, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Russia signed an agreement to end the military conflict over the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh.
It follows six weeks of fighting between Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenians.
Baku and Yerevan have disputed sovereignty over Nagorno-Karabakh since February 1988, when the region declared secession from the Azerbaijani Soviet Socialist Republic, according to TASS news agency.
In the armed conflict of 1992-1994, Azerbaijan lost control of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjoining districts.
