“Today we thoroughly discussed the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” Lavrov said at a joint press conference with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov in Moscow.
He noted that the common attitude is to ensure the continuation of the settlement process.
“There is a need to create the necessary atmosphere for lasting, sustainable negotiations. However, negotiations should not be conducted for the sake of negotiations. They should be aimed at resolving the Karabakh conflict,” the Russian minister added.
