Russia expects that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs will join the solution of humanitarian problems in Nagorno-Karabakh on the basis of the trilateral agreements of November 9. This was announced on Saturday by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, TASS reported.
“We especially appreciate that the President of Azerbaijan, dear Ilham Heydarovich (Aliyev), invariably emphasizes the task of reconciliation in this region, which, in our deep conviction, is the whole point of further work, if we really think about people, and not about some interests brought in,” Lavrov said at a meeting with the President of Azerbaijan.
The Russian Foreign Minister noted the need to involve international organizations in solving the humanitarian problems of Nagorno-Karabakh.
“We, through our peacekeepers, together with our Azerbaijani colleagues, with the participation of the Armenian side, are actively coordinating concrete ways of solving humanitarian problems in the interests of returning people. This is the arrangement of civil infrastructure, and the establishment of everything necessary to unblock economic and transport communications,” he added.
“And, of course, we expect that the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, who together with Russia have been leading the political process for many years, that they will join the solution of these tasks, taking into account and on the basis of the agreements of November 9”.
