An Agreement To End Fighting

An Agreement To End Fighting

Since then, sporadic clashes have taken place and fighting began on 27 September. Several ceasefires had been declared, but were almost immediately injured. The deal announced early Tuesday, however, seemed more likely, as Azerbaijan made significant progress, including taking control of the strategic city of Shushi on Sunday. Armenia and Azerbaijan have announced an agreement to end fighting for the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, as part of a pact signed with Russia, which provides for the dispatch of Russian peacekeeping forces and territorial concessions. Armenia`s prime minister says he has signed an agreement with Azerbaijan and Russia to end fighting in the separatist Nagorno-Karabakh region, Reuters reports. The President of Azerbaijan also confirms that he has signed the agreement, which comes after more than a month of bloody fighting in the region. The agreement calls on the Armenian armed forces to cede control of certain areas outside the borders of Nagorno-Karabakh, including the Eastern District of Agdam. According to international law, a ceasefire is a legal agreement (often in a document) ending the struggle between the “warmongers” of a war or conflict. [2] In the 1899 Hague Convention, which concluded three treaties and made three declarations, the Convention on the Laws and Customs of War on Land states that “if the duration of the ceasefire is not fixed”, the parties may resume the struggle (Article 36) after completion, but with regular notifications. This is in relation to a ceasefire of “fixed duration” during which the parties will only be able to renew the fighting at the end of its fixed duration.
