Peskov: Moscow working with Baku, Yerevan on Lachin solutions

PanARMENIAN.Net - Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has said that Russia is consistently discussing with the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides various options for resolving the situation around the Lachin corridor, TASS reports.

“The Russian side consistently continues its work with both Baku and Yerevan. We will continue to do this,” Peskov said.

“Quite recently, the first batch of humanitarian aid arrived [in Karabakh], which was organized, by the way, thanks to the efforts of the Russian side. We will continue to work. And now different options are being discussed and worked out with the parties,” he said, responding to a request to comment on State Department statements about the need to immediately open the Lachin corridor due to the humanitarian situation in Karabakh.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 12 that the Armenian leadership actually recognized the sovereignty of Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh and simply recorded this on paper in its Prague statement. In this context, questions arise related to the humanitarian component and the mandate of Russian peacekeepers to stay in the region, Putin added.
