    Protests have erupted in Armenia’s capital following the announcement of a new Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire deal which is expected to end the conflict. According to Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, the text of the joint statement is extremely painful for himself and the Armenian people, but the decision had to be made.

    Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan had signed a joint declaration on a new ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh, which is expected to come into force starting Tuesday, November 10. Under the new deal, Azerbaijan and Armenia will stop at their current positions, exchange prisoners and allow peacekeepers to be deployed in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

    ​Demonstrators protesting against the joint statement on terminating the war in Karabakh went to the government building.
