/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Russia’s activation in the Nagorno Karabakh process
is conditioned by its regional interests, said Vasily Istratov,
Russia’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan.
"Moscow is awaiting Baku’s response to President Medvedev’s proposal
for a trilateral presidential meeting. The OSCE Minsk Group has worked
out a number of solutions, but they have not been accepted as they did
not satisfy all of the sides. There should be no competition between
the formats. They should complement each other," Amb. Istratov said.
"The situation in the Caucasus is complicated" he regretted. "This
means that we should seek for solutions and reach an agreement,"
he said, Trend Azeri news agency reports.
When in Yerevan, Dmitry Medvedev said, "I am hopeful that the sides
in the Karabakh conflict are ready to fix progress in the negotiation
process. The Presidents of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan will meet in
Moscow in the near future to discuss the issue. Russia will continue
search for mutually acceptable decision on Karabakh."
