Large-scale problems began to arise with the involvement of the West in the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry (MFA) Maria Zakharova at the briefing held today, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.
"With the involvement of the West and the European Union in the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations, large-scale problems began to arise. As soon as they appeared, large-scale problems began to appear," Zakharova said.
According to her, the West's words about peace and statements about their desire to help are in complete contradiction with the situation in reality.
The spokesperson of the Russian MFA commented on the statement of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken that "a peace agreement can be signed between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the near future".
"Let's explain what happened. Many people comment on the perspectives. However, we take the position that first this (signing of the peace agreement-ed.) should happen, and then it should be interpreted. We are always ready to comment. But there is nothing to comment here," she said.
