The Russian side welcomes the meeting between Azerbaijan and Armenia on border delimitation and is ready to assist in the process, Official Representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova told reporters at a briefing.
“We welcome the meeting of representatives of Azerbaijan and Armenia on the shared border. During this event, the parties agreed on methodological and organizational issues in preparation for the launch of practical work on delimitation. For our part, we are ready to provide every assistance in the course of direct delimitation activities,” the diplomat said.
Zakharova also indicated that further delays in the work of the trilateral working group on unblocking transport communications in the South Caucasus, co-chaired by the vice-premiers, would work against the countries of the region. “We believe that further delay in reaching agreements within the trilateral working group will work against the interests of the countries of the region, including against the interests of Armenia,” she added.
The representative of the Russian diplomatic service recalled that significant progress had been achieved within the framework of the tripartite working group. “If there is political will on both sides, we could quickly complete the work on agreeing on specific projects and launch substantive activities,” she emphasized.
