2. Dissolution and Disarmament: The complete dissolution and disarmament of the armed formations of the Artsakh Defense Army.


3. Withdrawal of Heavy Equipment and Weapons: The withdrawal of heavy equipment and weapons from the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh, with the intention of their prompt dismantling.


Moreover, the statement from the Artsakh President's Office highlights the willingness of both parties to engage in dialogue to address key issues raised by both sides. These issues encompass the reintegration, rights, and security of the Armenian citizens of Artsakh. Additionally, discussions will focus on ensuring the livelihoods of the population of Nagorno-Karabakh within the framework of the Constitution of Azerbaijan.


The statement reads, "The issues raised by the Azerbaijani side regarding the reintegration, rights, and security of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as ensuring the livelihood of the population of Nagorno-Karabakh within the framework of the Constitution of Azerbaijan, in accordance with the agreement reached, will be discussed during the meeting between the representatives of the local Armenian population and the central authorities of the Republic of Azerbaijan."
