BAKU, June 10. /TASS/. The meeting between the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia planned in June will help determine vectors in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to Russia Poland Bulbuloglu said on Friday.
"I think that the meeting (between the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia) will take place in June. It is very important for us because it should probably determine the vectors of future development of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh," Bulbuloglu said during the Baku-Minsk video bridge.
He also noted that "Baku expects more active mediation efforts from Russia on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict."
"Russia wants peace in the region and strives to resolve this conflict by peaceful means," the ambassador stressed.
Bulbuloglu said that leading European countries recognize Moscow’s leadership in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict. "During the recent visit of (Azerbaijani) President (Ilham) Aliyev to Germany, (German) Chancellor Angela Merkel openly admitted that Russia has a priority in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict," the diplomat added. He expressed hope that the meeting between the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia "will give an impetus to a fair resolution of this inveterate conflict."
On May 16 the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan met in Vienna. Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev agreed to "make steps to monitor observance of agreements on ceasefire and introduce a mechanism on investigating incidents."
