Baku and Ankara will create the Hi-Tech Park in the Nagorno Karabakh region, RIA Novosti reports.

The corresponding memorandum was signed between the parties, representatives of the Azerbaijan Innovation Agency said.

The region has always been a cultural center, the birthplace of poets, musicians, and art workers, the report said, noting that the transformation of Karabakh into a region of high technologies and innovations is essential for the economy and progress of Azerbaijan.

For this purpose, there are plans to open technological parks and innovation centers in the Nagorno Karabakh region. The Innovation Agency took the first step on this path by signing a memorandum with a technopark located in one of the largest industrial regions of Turkey, which supports 130 technology companies, reads the document.

On Dec. 1, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that Armenians and Azerbaijanis would live in good-neighborliness in the Nagorno Karabakh region.

On Nov. 10, Vladimir Putin, Ilham Aliyev, and Nikol Pashinyan signed a joint statement on the complete cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the document, several regions come under Baku's control; the parties are exchanging prisoners, and Russia deploys its peacekeepers along the line of contact and the Lachin corridor connecting Karabakh with Armenia.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that Major General Igor Konashenkov, an official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, said the peacekeepers and representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross continue their activities in the region.
