Ambassador: Yerevan counts on Russia`s mediation efforts to resolve  escalation on the Armenian- Azerbaijani border

ArmInfo. Yerevan relies on Russia's mediation efforts to resolve the escalation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the head of the Armenian diplomatic  mission in Moscow Vardan Toghanyan told TASS.

"Today there was a statement by the press secretary of the president  of the Russian Federation, and the Foreign Ministry made a statement  yesterday We are also counting very much on Russia that it will be  able to make its mediation efforts to stop what is happening there  [on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border]. We are counting on the reaction  of our colleagues from the CSTO, because we are talking about a  section of the Armenian border, which is recognized by the CSTO  members, "the diplomat said.  In addition, the Ambassador pointed out  that the situation is complicated by the aggressive statements of  Turkey.

Answering the question about the possibility of submitting the  situation to the UN Security Council, he noted that Yerevan expects  relevant actions from the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group  primarily.

"The only legitimate international mandate is given to the OSCE Minsk  Group, the three countries of the Security Council - Russia, the USA,  France - are participants in this process. We already know the  reaction of Russia, we know the reaction of the State Department and  France, therefore, negotiations are underway and the foreign  ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan talked yesterday with the Russian  minister. I think this question should be addressed to the co-chairs  of the OSCE Minsk Group, "Toghanyan concluded.
