“Russia urges all parties to restrain and primarily calls for compliance with all clauses of the trilateral agreements that represent a benchmark,” the spokesman told the press. Commenting on the recent statement of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian on the need to specify the peace operation´s details in Nagorno-Karabakh, Peskov said that “all questions should be answered if they exist”.
In this regard, the Kremlin representative added that Moscow “has close contacts at various levels with Armenia, which will make it possible to explain the existing issues”.
In this regard, he referred that currently, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s agenda does not include the telephone conversation with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, but “the contact can be carried out in a very operative way” if necessary, Peskov stated.
By agreement between the parties, Moscow stationed a peacekeeping contingent in the area, while Armenian forces withdrew from the districts of Agdam, Kelbecer (Kalbajar) and Lachin, seized from Azerbaijan during the 1992-1994 war.
Last May the presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to begin preparations for peace negotiations and in the same month the deputy Prime Ministers consolidated the proposal within the framework of the work of the commission for the delimitation and security of the borders.
