The head of the press at the Russian Presidency told reporters that Moscow is ‘making great efforts to ease tensions and solve the situation.’
He stressed that Russia considers the implementation and fulfillment of the trilateral agreements on Nagorno-Karabakh, reached on November 20, 2020, and January 11, 2021, between Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, an alternative to the conflict.
The Ministry of Defense of Armenia denounced on May 12 that Azerbaijani soldiers tried to ‘perform certain works in a border section with the southern Armenian province of Syunik,’ which ended after Erevan took measures that were not specified.
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry on Sunday pointed out that relevant measures are being taken to normalize the situation, and called on Armenia ‘to prevent an unmotivated escalation and resolve border affairs constructively, through bilateral channels.’
‘It is Armenia that violated Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized borders,’ Leyla Abdullayeva, head of the press service at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, commented. She described Erevan’s accusations as ‘unfounded.’
