Lavrov: We have an understanding of the possibilities for reaching a  compromise in the settlement of the Karabakh conflict

ArmInfo.We have an understanding that there is an opportunity to reach a compromise in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. This was announced  on December 3 in Baku at a joint press conference with Azerbaijani  Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei  Lavrov.

He emphasized that at the meeting with Mamedyarov, the Karabakh issue  was discussed in sufficient detail.  "This is not a simple matter.  The conflict is practically one of the longest in the former Soviet  Union. And we are grateful to our Azerbaijani friends that they are  understanding the ideas that the Russian side is promoting both  bilaterally and as co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group. And these  meetings yesterday and today help to understand how best to move  forward. We hope that there will be a result, "Lavrov said.

In turn, Mammadyarov noted that at the meeting all recent  developments in this direction were weighed.  "This issue is a  serious topic of our negotiations with Russia, both bilaterally and  multilaterally, as the Russian Federation is a member of the OSCE  Minsk Group. We are absolutely sure that we need to move forward,  because the state of neither peace nor war that exists today nobody  needs it. Yes, the world is quite complicated, and a phased approach  is needed to clear the table of aggravating elements. It is necessary  that the army returns to the barracks, rather than being in the  fields, "the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister said.  According to the  Azerbaijani minister, this will unlock roads, lift the economic  blockade, and facilitate exchange. "First of all, the settlement  should follow the logic that this cooperation should lead to  prosperity, and in this case, this topic is always on the agenda of  our dialogue with Russia," Mammadyarov concluded.
