Armenia is prepared to sign a peace treaty with Azerbaijan within one month, according to Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan. He made this announcement during a joint news conference with Estonian Foreign Minister Margus Tsahkna in Tallinn on Thursday.

Mirzoyan stated that negotiations between Armenia and Azerbaijan have progressed significantly, and the text of the draft peace treaty is nearly finalized. "Armenia is ready to complete and sign the peace treaty in one month," he said.

However, Mirzoyan noted that there has not yet been a positive reaction from Azerbaijan regarding the proposal to sign the treaty within this timeframe. Despite this, he expressed optimism that the treaty would be signed soon, marking an end to the longstanding conflict in the South Caucasus. Mirzoyan emphasized that achieving peace would benefit all countries in the region and their citizens.

Mirzoyan explained that dialogue with Turkey has led to clear agreements on steps towards full normalization of relations. These agreements include provisions not only for citizens of third countries but also for those of Armenia and Turkey who hold diplomatic passports. He expressed a strong belief that it is time to implement these agreements and turn them into reality.
