Russia will do its best for the settlement of the Karabakh conflict and bringing closer positions of the sides, Russian Deputy FM Grigory Karasin said in an interview with the Voice of Russia.

“Both Armenia and Azerbaijan are our close CIS partners. We value relations both with Yerevan and Baku. We are sparing no effort fairly and honestly to bring closer positions of the sides on Karabakh issue,” Karasin said.

According to him, it is a complicated story having deep roots and long history. First of all it is necessary to focus on the OSCE Minsk Group which is working hard, he added.

Karasin said the Minsk Group Co-Chairs are paying regular visits to the region where they meet with the leaders to help them find acceptable wordings for the future documents.

“We support their activities and reckon on concrete results,” he emphasized.
