“As far as I understand, no one has recognized the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as Armenia itself. We also do not think on recognizing,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the press conference on the finals of 2020, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
"As for the exotic question of Nagorno-Karabakh's accession to Russia, I must say that the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh is not recognized by anyone, including Armenia. And we have no such idea," said Russian FM.
According to him, there has not been an idea of the inclusion of Nagorno-Karabakh in Russia: "We believe that all issues in the region should be resolved by the countries located here, first of all between Azerbaijan and Armenia. We will continue to help find such a solution. This solution will ensure peace and security in the region, and most importantly, the security of the people who have always lived here."
