Moscow awaiting Baku response to Medvedev's proposal

PanARMENIAN.Net - Russia's activation in the Nagorno Karabakh process is conditioned by its regional interests, said Vasily Istratov, Russia's Ambassador to Azerbaijan.

"Moscow is awaiting Baku's response to President Medvedev's proposal for a trilateral presidential meeting. The OSCE Minsk Group has worked out a number of solutions, but they have not been accepted as they did not satisfy all of the sides. There should be no competition between the formats. They should complement each other," Amb. Istratov said.

"The situation in the Caucasus is complicated" he regretted. "This means that we should seek for solutions and reach an agreement," he said, Trend Azeri news agency reports.

When in Yerevan, Dmitry Medvedev said, "I am hopeful that the sides in the Karabakh conflict are ready to fix progress in the negotiation process. The Presidents of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan will meet in Moscow in the near future to discuss the issue. Russia will continue search for mutually acceptable decision on Karabakh."
