YEREVAN, April 7. /TASS/. Russia will be prepared to act as a mediator in settling the Karabakh conflict, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev after a meeting with his Armenian counterpart, Hovik Abrahamyan, on Thursday.
"This situation certainly causes our extreme concern. It is essential to prevent the conflict from evolving into the hot phase, because this might have the most tragic consequences for the region," Medvedev said.
He voiced the hope that the ceasefire regimen would be observed and the political process resumed and the "diplomats, not military will be doing the conflict settlement job."
Russia, he said, will be prepared to keep playing the role of a mediator within the Minsk Group, using its influence in accordance with the corresponding procedures.
"The mechanism that is now available has no alternative. Its powers are reaffirmed by the UN Security Council and the OSCE," Medvedev said.
