MOSCOW - Leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed on Monday to take joint measures to restore transportation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region recently freed from armed conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan issued a statement on these measures following their talks in Moscow.

According to the statement, the three countries will set up a trilateral working group co-chaired by their deputy prime ministers to ensure that all economic and transport connections in Nagorno-Karabakh will be unblocked, part of a ceasefire deal reached by the three leaders on Nov. 9, 2020.

The working group will hold its first meeting before Jan. 30 to make a list of key areas of work, with railway and road links as the priority.

Under the working group, expert subgroups will be established to determine projects together with the necessary resources and activities for their implementation.

By March 1, the working group will come up with a detailed plan for the restoration and construction of infrastructure necessary for safe transportation in the region.
