ArmInfo. Russia expects that the settlement of the Karabakh conflict gives in. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov stated after talks with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov in response to the question whether the settlement of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh is possible in Moscow on March 6 to the so-called "Kazan formula".
According to him, this is indicated by the results of many years of contacts, on the basis of which it was possible to develop a common understanding of the key issues to be resolved. "First of all, security, humanitarian issues, the return of those areas, which are around Karabakh and is not controlled by Azerbaijan, determination of Nagorno Karabakh status (of course, taking into account the views of the people who live there), the coordination of the parameters of an international peacekeeping force.
At the same time, he stressed that in the current environment before it is possible to resume substantive negotiations to resolve the outstanding issues, it is very important to achieve a de-escalation of the situation, which has recently escalated "on the ground". We hope that Azerbaijan and Armenia will move in this direction. For its part, will do our best to promote this", Lavrov resumed.
