“Initiative of Six cooperation platform belongs to Azerbaijan and Turkish presidents. As you know, Russia supported this initiative,” said the official representative of Russian MFA Mariya Zakharova at the briefing held today, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
“We consider that multilateral regional cooperation meets the interests of all participants of this format. We think that starting implementation of this cooperation mechanism would help to increase confidence in interstate relations, settlement of existing conflicts, revealing transport and economic potential of the region. We see impeding attempts of a number of Western states, firstly the US, to a number of processes. Our American partners use disinformation in these attempts. For example, it is written that the author of the initiative of "Six cooperation Platform" is Moscow. This is done in the Russophobe atmosphere. But the facts tell another thing. Yes, we have supported this mechanism, this format. But, initiatives came from another country", said the Russian official.
