Lavrov assures that Moscow is ready to “help” in the agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan

June 24. (EUROPA PRESS) –

Lavrov assured this Thursday that Moscow is willing to consult and advise the two border delimitation and demarcation commissions created in Armenia and Azerbaijan and is willing to “help” in the agreement between the two countries, after talks with the Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev.

“(Aliyev) has mentioned the normalization of relations, a peace treaty and the provisions of the future treaty that he has delivered. We have heard about the readiness of the Armenian side to negotiate on the issue. In this regard, we are also ready to help, if Azerbaijan and Armenia agree,” the Russian minister stressed.

Thus, he specified that “there have been concrete proposals on the subject” and he is “willing to discuss them”, he stated in an interview on Belarusian national television, as reported by the TASS news agency.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met Thursday with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in Baku to express his support for the peace agreement with Armenia to clarify the common border.

The agreement reached between the parties in November 2021 contemplates the administration of borders, security, land rates and customs in the context of international transport, as well as “all issues related to the delimitation” of said border limits.

After Thursday’s meeting with the Russian side, Aliyev assessed the peace and security agreement in the region, which was sponsored by the President of the European Council, Charles Michel.

Armenia and Azerbaijan staged a confrontation in 2020 to take control of Nagorno Karabakh, a territory with a majority Armenian population that has been a focus of conflict since it decided to separate in 1988 from the Azerbaijan region integrated into the Soviet Union.

Hostilities between the two nations lasted for six weeks and left thousands dead. They finally ceased when the two countries reached a Russian-brokered ceasefire agreement, allowing Russian peacekeepers to settle in Nagorno-Karabakh for a period of five years.
