Russia says terms of peacekeepers' presence in Karabakh to be coordinated with Azerbaijan
Baku, October 4, AZERTAC
Russia will decide on terms of the presence of its peacekeepers in Karabakh together with Baku, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.
“The timing and other issues of the deployment of Russian peacekeepers in the region will be determined jointly with our colleagues ... If we are talking about the territory of Karabakh, then together with the Azerbaijani side, taking into account the situation on the ground," Zakharova said in response to Anadolu's question at a news conference in Moscow.
Zakharova said the Zangezur transport corridor has a "significant potential" for moving towards normalization of relations between Yerevan and Baku.
The work on the implementation of the project is being carried out in the trilateral Armenian-Azerbaijani-Russian working group, headed by deputy prime ministers of the three countries, she said.
“The group considers a project to restore the transport route that connects Azerbaijan with the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic through the Syunik region of Armenia.
We see in the implementation of this project a significant potential for moving towards normalization of relations between Yerevan and Baku. Everything depends on the political will of the countries and the willingness to reach specific agreements," she emphasized.
