Armenia and Azerbaijan have reached an agreement to end the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced on Facebook early Tuesday morning.

“I have signed a statement on the termination of the Karabakh war along with the Russian and Azerbaijani presidents,” he wrote.

The agreement comes into effect at 01:00.

The apparent peace deal comes after Azerbaijan captured the key town of Shushi, the second largest in the region, after weeks of bloody fighting that has killed thousands of fighters and dozens of civilians. The conflict has also seen cities and villages destroyed by missile strikes and accusations of attacks on residential settlements that the United Nations warned could amount to “war crimes.”
