YEREVAN, April 21. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has arrived on an official visit in Armenia where he is going to discuss with the country's leaders the situation in the much-troubled exclave region of Nagorno-Karabakh, as tensions between the conflicting sides flared up last month and bilateral relations.
On April 22, Lavrov will have talks with President Serzh Sargsyan and Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian. His itinerary also includes the laying of flowers at the Eternal Flames at Tsitsernakaberd Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex.
Lavrov and Nalbandian are expected to review a wide range bilateral, regional and international issues. Special attention will be given to peace settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh in the wake of a recent surge of tensions in the zone of conflict.
Officials in Moscow said this problem was destined to loom large at the negotiations.
Maria Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry's official spokesperson called on Moscow and Yerevan to exercise restraint and to resume bilateral negotiations.
