Russian Foreign Ministry: No noticeable changes in Karabakh  settlement

ArmInfo. There have been no noticeable changes in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement. This is stated in the response of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian  Federation to media questions received at a press conference on the  results of the activities of Russian diplomacy in 2019.

"There are progresses in the implementation of the" small steps "that  the foreign ministers agreed at a meeting in Moscow in April 2019 to  develop the agreements reached between the President of Azerbaijan  and the Prime Minister of Armenia in Vienna in March 2019. The  situation on the border and the Contact Line remains relatively calm.  There is a hotline between Yerevan and Baku. A journalistic exchange  carried out. The captured Zaven Karapetyan and Ilvin Ibrahimov were  returned. Work continues on other prisoners. The ICRC is connected to  it. We believe that all this testifies to the intention of the  parties to take concrete steps aimed at preparing the population for  peace, "the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.

At the same time, the Foreign Ministry stated that so far no progress  has been made on matters of the essence of the settlement. The  Russian Foreign Ministry recalled that this topic was discussed  during the recent visits of Sergey Lavrov to Yerevan and Baku. "There  is hope that a substantive conversation will resume between the  parties in the foreseeable future. For our part, we will provide the  necessary assistance together with the French and American co-chairs  in the Minsk Group," the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.
