Russian FM says OSCE Minsk Group remains demanded


YEREVAN, MAY 11, ARMENPRESS. The OSCE Minsk Group still remains demanded firstly in terms of promoting the cooperation on solving humanitarian problems and the measures aimed at creating trust between the parties, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said at a press conference in Baku, Azerbaijan, commenting on the settlement of the situation in Artsakh.

“The key to further settlement of the situation is to fully follow the agreements reached on November 9 last year and on January 11 this year between the leaders of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. These agreements ensure all the necessary mechanisms contributing to the observance of the ceasefire, as well as aim at unblocking infrastructure which have long not enabled to reveal this geopolitically important region’s very serious transit and economic potential”, the Russian FM said, adding that the trilateral working group led by the deputy prime ministers of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan has a key contribution to the implementation of those agreements.

According to FM Lavrov, the unblocking of infrastructure will allow the South-Caucasian states to join together with their neighbors a common transportation space.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
