Armenia is “ready” to sign a trilateral agreement with Russia and Azerbaijan on the extension of the mandate of the Russian peacekeepers in Azerbaijan's Karabakh for up to 20 years, the Armenian prime minister said on Saturday.

"We want the Russian peacekeepers to continue their mission. I am ready to sign in Sochi a document about the extension of the mandate of the Russian peacekeepers for 10, 15 or 20 years," Nikol Pashinyan said at a congress of Civil Contract political party.

"I can make this proposal myself, but the Russian side should support it," Pashinyan said.

On Friday, the Kremlin press service announced that the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan and the prime minister of Armenia will hold a trilateral meeting in Russia's resort city of Sochi on Oct.31.

The Armenian prime minister noted that he cannot decide on the extension unilaterally because the agreement, under which the peacekeeping mission is organized, was signed by three parties - Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Russia.

However, Armenian PM still expects support from Russia to gain the majority.
