MOSCOW, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russia plans to further contribute to the negotiations on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement, President Dmitry Medvedev told a news conference after the talks with his Armenian counterpart Serzh Sargsian on Monday.
“The important theme of our talks is stronger stability in the Caucasus,” the Medvedev said adding he had exchanged opinions on the situation in Nagorno Karabakh with Sargsian.
“I am personally confident that a fair solution to the conflict can be found only through political means,” he said noting that much progress has been achieved in this direction of late.
“Russia plans to further contribute to the negotiating process as a co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group and through direct contacts between the Armenian and Azerbaijani authorities,” Medvedev said.
Sargsian, in turn, highlighted Russia’s role in the talks on the conflict settlement.
“I once again thanked Russia’s president and foreign minister for mediatory efforts they are taking in close cooperation with other countries-co-chairs of the Minsk Group. Through Dmitry Anatolyevich’s mediation and personal participation ten meetings between the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents took place, three statements that created opportunities for emerging signs of confidence between the sides were signed,” he said.
The Armenian president referred to the statement on Nagorno Karabakh signed by the Russian, French and U.S. leaders.
“During our today’s meeting I once again confirmed Armenia’s adherence to the soonest possible settlement of the conflict exclusively through peaceful means and on the basis of integral principles of the humanitarian law,” Sargsian said.
