MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) - The co-chairs of the Minsk OSCE Group will visit Nagorno Karabakh on May 22, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the negotiations with his Azerbaijani counterpart Elmar Mamedyarov here on Tuesday.
“The current status quo is certainly unacceptable,” Lavrov noted. “Meanwhile, it is unacceptable for all, primarily Azerbaijan and Armenia, and those who live in Karabakh,” Lavrov said with confidence.
“The status quo means not only the question over the return of the Azerbaijani territories is unsettled, it also means the economic blockade of Armenia,” the minister noted. “Therefore, no one should be talked into the unacceptance of the status quo,” he said. “For Russia it is unacceptable just because they are our neighbours, our friends, between whom a long and thorny conflict continues,” Lavrov added. “The stability and calmness in the Caucasus for us is one of the priorities of the Russian foreign policy,” the Russian foreign minister underlined.
