MOSCOW (Reuters) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said he intended to intensify political and diplomatic efforts to sign a peace treaty with Azerbaijan, Russia's TASS news agency reported on Thursday.

In late October, Pashinyan said he intended to conclude a peace treaty with Azerbaijan "in the coming months".

His comments came amid efforts to cement peace in the South Caucasus after Azerbaijan retook the contested region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
