Moscow responded to protest note of Baku

ArmInfo.The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs responded to a note of protest from  Azerbaijan. "In connection with the delivery of protest notes to the  Ambassador of Russia to Baku and the corresponding commentary of the  Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry press service regarding the <visit> to  Moscow of representatives of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh  Republic Masis Mayilyan and Lilit Hovhannisyan we would like to note  the following:

The trip of these persons, if any It was of a purely  private nature, in this capacity it does not contradict either  Russian legislation, existing international agreements, or Russia's  mediation mission in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement (NKU). No  meetings were held with officials of the Russian Federation, "the  Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.

"As for the references to certain contacts between M. Mayilyan and L.  Hovhannisyan with Russian experts at the" Permanent Mission of  Artsakh in Russia ", we emphasize again that such a" mission "is not  registered with the state bodies of the Russian Federation as a  diplomatic mission of a sovereign state, since our the country does  not recognize the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, "the Russian Foreign  Ministry noted.  At the same time, Moscow pointed out the groundless  claims against the Russian side contained in the note and comments by  the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, and the general tone  did not correspond to the level and quality of Russian-Azerbaijani  relations.

"For our part, we will continue to contribute to the achievement of  the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, both as part of the co-chairs of the  OSCE Minsk Group on NKU and in national quality, taking into account  our relations with Azerbaijan and Armenia," the Russian Foreign  Ministry noted.  As previously reported, official Baku protested to  the Russian ambassador in connection with the visit to Moscow of  Artsakh Foreign Minister Masis Mayilyan.
