A meeting between Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Russian President Vladimir Putin started in Moscow.

At the talks, it is planned to consider the implementation of the statements of the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia dated November 9, 2020 and January 11, 2021, as well as further steps to strengthen stability and establish economic ties in the region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested to Pashinyan to 'synchronise watches' before the CIS summit and discuss settlement issues in the South Caucasus region.

'Soon we will have a CIS summit. I would also like to synchronise watches with you in this area. And, of course, on the main issues of our interaction, including settlement in the region today, and in the long term,' said Putin before the start of negotiations.

At the same time, he emphasised the importance of personal meetings for achieving results.

'We are in constant contact by phone. But, of course, personal meetings are always more productive to achieve the desired result. I hope it will be so this time, we will talk in a formal and informal setting -- we will have lunch together,' said Putin, inviting Pashinyan to discuss 'current affairs' and future issues.
