The Declaration, in particular, reads that welcoming the consistent steps of the people and authorities of the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic aimed at the creation and development of a free and democratic society, as well as realizing that the isolation of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh doesn’t contribute to the establishment of dialogue between peoples and to the achievement of final peace, the parties decided to establish friendly relations between the two cities.

The Declaration aims to facilitate relations between the two cities and to promote implementation of programs in the fields of education, culture, sports, trade, and local self-government.
