Yerevan does not refuse dialogue with Baku, says Armenian FM 

Yerevan does not refuse a dialogue with Baku, but an appropriate atmosphere is needed to shape the agenda, said Armenian Foreign Minister Ara Ayvazyan in an interview with RIA Novosti.

"We never refuse to meet. However, any meeting, if not organized just for the sake of the meeting, must meet the certain criteria. First of all, it is about creating an appropriate atmosphere, forming a concrete agenda," Ayvazyan stated.

Note, on November 10, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia signed an agreement to end six weeks of fierce fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Under the agreement, Russian peacekeepers are being deployed along the front line in Nagorno-Karabakh and the corridor between the region and Armenia.

A total of 1,960 Russian peacekeepers are to be deployed in Nagorno-Karabakh under a five-year mandate.

Also, according to the agreement, on 20 November, Armenia handed over the Aghdam region which lies to the east of Nagorno-Karabakh, to Azerbaijan. This followed on 25 November by the Kalbajar region to the northwest of Nagorno-Karabakh

Finally, on 1 December, Armenia handed over the Lachin District, over which the Lachin pass connecting Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia passes.
