No "major incidents" reported in Karabakh, says Russia

No "major incidents" have taken place in Nagorno-Karabakh where Russian peacekeepers are stationed, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Wednesday, June 9.

"Now our peacekeepers are fulfilling their mandate, there are no major incidents at all, which is recognized both in Baku and in Yerevan," Lavrov said, adding that minor problems are quickly being eliminated.

"Yes, there is tension in certain sections of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border, but this has nothing to do with Nagorno-Karabakh."

Lavrov also noted that the status of Nagorno-Karabakh must be coordinated with the involvement of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs (Russia, U.S., France).

The Armenian Foreign Ministry earlier unveiled its position, according to which the processes of delimitation and demarcation of the borders between Armenia and Azerbaijan should be part of the process of a comprehensive peace settlement, within the framework of which issues of de-occupation of the territories of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karbakh Republic) should be resolved and the final legal status of Artsakh should be achieved under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group.
