 Tension on Armenia-Azerbaijan border has nothing to do with Karabakh, says Moscow

There is tension in certain sections of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, but this has nothing to do with Nagorno-Karabakh, AzVision.az cited Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as saying on Wednesday.

Lavrov noted that no incidents took place in Karabakh, where Russian peacekeepers are stationed.

“Now our peacekeepers are fulfilling their duties. There are no major incidents at all, and this fact is recognized both by Baku and Yerevan. Some minors obstacles are eliminated immediately,” Russia’s top diplomat added. 

"Now many people say that the status of Nagorno-Karabakh remains unresolved. This will have to be finally agreed upon with the participation of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, who at this stage should not raise the issue of status, but should help strengthen mutual trust, resolve humanitarian issues, and ensure that Armenians and Azerbaijanis once again live side by side, together, in security and economic well-being. And then in a couple of years, all the problems of the status will be solved much easier," Lavrov also said.
