Armenia and Azerbaijan exchanged lists of Persons of War (PoWs) and missing servicemen, reports citing the office of Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan.

The parties to the conflict submitted lists of their citizens to the International Committee of the Red Cross for their mutual return.

Under the agreement, Russian peacekeepers were deployed along the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh and the corridor between the region and Armenia.

A total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers were deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.
