Lavrov says Armenia-Azerbaijan delimitation will help settle Parukh matter

PanARMENIAN.Net - The situation in the Nagorno-Karabakh village of Parukh is in the center of attention of Russian peacekeepers, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference with his Armenian counterpart Ararat Mirzoyan in Yerevan on Thursday, June 9.

“As for the situation (in Parukh), it is a priority for the Russian military, and our Armenian friends are aware of this. There are already certain results on the ground in terms of de-escalation of the situation,” Lavrov said, according to Sputnik Armenia.

The Russian foreign policy chief maintained that there is an understanding that these issues will be considered and resolved as part of the upcoming work on delimitation of the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Azerbaijani troops continue to remain in positions they set up on Karaglukh, a strategic height in Nagorno-Karabakh, which Azeri forces stormed in March, killing injuring Armenian soldiers.
