Trilateral meeting on Karabakh positive: Serzh Sargsyan
President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan has called the Russia-mediated meeting with Azerbaijani President as useful for easing tensions in the long-running Karabakh conflict.
“The trilateral meetings play a positive role,” President Sargsyan said in an interview with Reuters.
“Of course, the situation at the conflict zone is much calmer than three, five or six months and even a year ago. The Azerbaijani forces keep shooting from time to time, but mostly use weapons of small calibers,” the President said.
Serzh Sargsyan said in St. Petersburg the parties agreed to strengthen the monitoring of the ceasefire regime, develop a mechanism of investigation of incidents in the conflict zone under the auspices of the OSCE.
“We also agreed to continue the meetings in trilateral format. The negotiation process under the aegis of the OSCE Minsk Group will also continue,” he added.
