The unfounded criticism of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) by some Armenian political figures doesn't help find consistent, mutually acceptable solutions, Russia's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a weekly briefing, AzVision.az reports.
"Similar destructive statements are pointless," she said.
Zakharova stated that Moscow sees attempts of a number of non-regional players to bring instability to the South Caucasus, which has recently got a legal chance to leave the protracted crisis.
"The mentioned line is destructive and extremely dangerous. Russia keeps making vigorous efforts to de-escalate the situation on the Azerbaijan-Armenia border. The necessary steps are being taken through the CSTO. A stable ceasefire regime should be ensured as well. The full implementation of the trilateral statements [signed by Russian, Azerbaijani and Armenian leaders] guarantees stability in the South Caucasus," she added.
