The ceasefire agreed in Moscow is for humanitarian purposes for the exchange of prisoners of war and bodies of the dead through the mediation of the International Committee of the Red Cross.

As Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov says The parties have also agreed to start substantive negotiations for the earliest possible achievement of a peaceful settlement of the conflict.

Speaking on TRT World, human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov, head of the Azerbaijan Institute for Democracy and Human Rights, said that this agreement will not reduce tensions on the frontline.

Because the Armenian army violated the ceasefire, fired on the villages on the line of contact and killed civilians. The human rights defender said that Armenia must withdraw its soldiers from all occupied territories and stressed the need to restore the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan. And only then can we talk about the possibility of any peace talks between the sides.
