Putin urges preservation of historic sites, sacred religious places in Karabakh conflict zone

Novo-Ogaryovo, November 20, Interfax - Historic and religious relics in the Karabakh conflict zone must be preserved; this is a question of ethical human dimension, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) should be a part of this, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

"I'd like to say a special word about the protection of historic monuments and religious relics, both Azerbaijani and Armenian ones. This subject has an important ethical human dimension. I believe that UNESCO's engagement is much needed here," Putin said at a meeting on the Russian peacekeeping mission in Nagorno-Karabakh on Friday.
