ArmInfo. Moscow welcomes the meeting of representatives of the commission on the delimitation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, held on November 30. Official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova stated on December 6 during a weekly briefing. She stated that during this meeting the parties agreed on methodological and organizational issues in preparation for the launch of practical work on delimitation.
In this vein, she again emphasized Moscow's readiness to provide all possible assistance to this process, including by providing cartographic data. According to her, this was confirmed on December 5 by the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry at a meeting with his counterpart from Azerbaijan.
"As for the trilateral working group on unblocking regional transport communications, co-chaired by the vice-premiers of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, as we noted earlier, significant progress has been achieved within its framework. And if there is political will on both sides, we could quickly complete agreeing on specific projects and launching substantive activities. We believe that further delaying agreements with reaching specific agreements within the framework of a trilateral working group will work against the interests of regional countries, including against the interests of Armenia," she added. Referring to the possibility of concluding a peace treaty between Yerevan and Baku, the diplomat recalled that Moscow sent invitations to Yerevan and Baku to organize a meeting in Moscow and on the sidelines of multilateral events. "Baku has always confirmed its readiness to hold negotiations. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same about our Armenian partners. Perhaps they believe that their new advisers from Washington, Brussels, Paris will be able to offer something more interesting, better. I don't know ", I think that you always need to look at the previous experience of your neighbors. We all saw what the gatherings under the auspices of the EU, including in Prague and Brussels, led to," Zakharova said.
At the same time, she suggested that perhaps the Armenian people are not aware of everything, since they are not informed about everything. At the same time, she warned against repeating the scenario, which would lead to new "surprises." "It was at the instigation of the Westerners that the relevant documents did not mention a single word about the rights and security of the Karabakh Armenians. Do they remember that now, when they want to trust Western advisers again?" Zakharova asked.
At the same time, she assured that if these points had been spelled out, then questions would not have arisen about what to do for people who left their homes, relying on the Yerevan authorities, who promised them a lot of things.
"How much and where else should Westerners show themselves so that it becomes clear: they will never act in the interests of the peoples of other countries. They always act in their own interests, and they need all other countries solely to realize these goals. This is a historically proven rule. "Perhaps I want to believe it," she concluded.
