Azeri President Ilham Aliyev on Monday thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for his personal input in the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – He added that two countries are actively cooperating on various international platforms, stressing that trilateral meetings between Baku, Moscow and Tehran will help to develop regional trade and security.

"I would like to highlight the Russian role in the resolution of the Armenian-Azeri Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. I thank you [President Putin] for you personal active participation in the process," Aliyev said at the meeting with Putin.

On Sunday, Aliyev held a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani in Baku. The meeting took place ahead of Monday's Russian-Iranian-Azerbaijani summit.

On April 2, tensions in Nagorno-Karabakh, an Azerbaijani breakaway region with a predominantly Armenian population, escalated. Baku and Yerevan accused each other of provoking the hostilities, however, the sides succeeded in reaching a ceasefire agreement on April 5, which has been followed by near-daily reports of truce violations.
