"Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is a bleeding conflict and we should not leave it to future generations,” member of the State Duma of Russia, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on the Commonwealth of Independent States, Eurasian Integration and Links with compatriots Leonid Slutsky has told AZERTAC.
He said that recent hostilities between Azerbaijan and Armenia showed that the problem must be solved quickly.
According to Slutsky, the process of settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is “very sensitive”.
“Speaking about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, both my colleagues and I always apprehend the responsibility," he said adding that the conflict can be solved in the next few years.
The Russian MP pointed out that Moscow considers the format of the OSCE Minsk Group as rational and efficient for maintaining peace in the region. "But at the same time, we understand that the seven year old Madrid principles, have not been yet implemented,” he said.
“I am sure that the politicians are doing everything possible to promote the settlement of this conflict," Slutsky emphasized. He said that despite all the efforts of parliamentarians, heads of state and foreign ministers will always play a major role in the resolution of this complex conflict.
