Russian Foreign Ministry: EU not trying to bar Russia from
participation in Karabakh settlement
MOSCOW May 7
Russia does not believe the EU is trying to bar it from participating
in the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement," Russian First Deputy Foreign
Minister Andrei Denisov told Interfax.
"We do not see such attempts as of yet," Denisov told Interfax.
"The commonly recognized mediator in this issue is the so-called Minsk
Group, which comprises officials from Russia, the U.S., and
France. France is a member of the EU. For this reason, we do not see
any contradictions here," he said.
