“Nobody is interested in the development of the crisis in Karabakh,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday during his annual Q&A session known as the Direct Line, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
V. Putin noted that neither Armenia nor Azerbaijan, no one is interested in the development of the crisis in Karabakh: “Russia has played a certain role in the settlement of this very serious crisis. Nobody is interested in him developing. Neither Azerbaijan, nor Armenia, nor the inhabitants of Nagorno-Karabakh ... The other side of the matter is that if we live peacefully and amicably, then we will create conditions for improving people's lives not only in the field of security but also in the current conditions. I mean the normal existence of families, I mean economic development, social development, which, of course, people living in Karabakh need to the highest degree. Because to live all the time in anxiety that it is impossible to resume an armed conflict. We understand this very well ”.
V. Putin said that the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan also understand this: “Yes, there are indeed many problems accumulated. There are issues with the restoration of normal infrastructure. There are issues related to delimiting the border in order to carry out appropriate work on the state border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, especially where there has never been a state border. It was only the administrative border between the two union republics. We are now in the process of this work. We have created a special trilateral group, which includes Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia. We will do our best to restore normal relations in the region. The beneficiaries of this work, of course, should be the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh. I would like to think that it will be so, despite all the difficulties that have accumulated over the decades."
