    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The detection of fragments of Russia's Iskander missiles in Karabakh is being discussed by the military agencies, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday soon after Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said he had discussed the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    "Military agencies are engaged in intensive dialogue, they discuss all the relevant issues," Peskov told reporters when asked if the Kremlin has received the letter and if the presidents have really touched upon this issue.

    In April, Azerbaijan announced that fragments of the Iskander missiles, allegedly used by Armenia during the escalation in Karabakh in the autumn of 2020, were found in Shusha during a mine clearance operation. Earlier on Tuesday, Aliyev recalled discussing the matter with Putin in their recent phone conversation and also said that Baku had sent an official letter to Moscow to seek clarification.
