"Creating a favorable atmosphere is key to resolving the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Friday, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.
Asked whether the meeting between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in Moscow would give impetus to the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the spokesperson said that the creation of a favorable atmosphere contributes to the negotiation process.
"Not only does it help, but also it is key to resolving this problem. Russia does its utmost to resolve the Karabakh conflict. We want the two nations finally to resolve this bloody conflict. We want to develop our relations with Azerbaijan and Armenia. Our task is to bring closer the moment of resolution, not to delay it," she said.
