ArmInfo.Yerevan prepared proposals aimed at de-escalating the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, and passed them both to Russia and through Moscow to Azerbaijan. Minister of Foreign Affairs of Armenia Ararat Mirzoyan stated this on January 19 during the Government Hour in Parliament
On January 14, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at a press conference following the results of the activities of Russian diplomacy in 2021, said that Russia would convey to Azerbaijan Armenia's proposals regarding a commission on the delimitation of the border between the two countries with its subsequent demarcation. "Just yesterday, I talked with an Armenian colleague who had new proposals, we are passing them on to Baku. We will look at how to make it (the commission) work as soon as possible," he said. "It is optimal to form this commission by including issues on its agenda that need to be addressed as a matter of priority," Lavrov added. As the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted, Baku and Yerevan are making their proposals regarding the formation of a commission, but disagreements on this issue remain. "In order to form a commission, it is necessary, first of all, to agree on the conditions. These conditions are now being discussed. There are differences," the minister continued. Our position is simple: we need to sit and, within the framework of an officially established commission, resolve all those issues that currently remain unresolved."
According to Mirzoyan, the Armenian side has prepared a package of measures aimed at de-escalating the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, reducing tension, increasing security and stability, and handed it over to the Russian side, and through Moscow also to Azerbaijan. "Now we are waiting for an answer," Mirzoyan said.
"Of course, I can't publish the details. In reality, there is no point in this. I can only say that they come from the issues constantly raised by the Prime Minister of the mirror withdrawal of troops and the creation of additional security mechanisms - our general concept, voiced earlier," Mirzoyan said. He added that this package was presented to the Security Council.
