Russia hopes Karabakh sides will implement trilateral statement

Russia hopes Azerbaijan and Armenia to implement the trilateral statement on Nagorno-Karabakh, unblocking of economic and transport communications, the chairwoman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko told speaker of the Azerbaijani parliament Sahiba Gafarova on Wednesday, October 13.

"Of course, we are worried, of course, we want the agreement to be fulfilled, so that the process of unblocking economic ties and transport communications goes on," the Matvienko said at a meeting that took place on the sidelines of the Eurasian Women's Forum, TASS reports.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian and Azerbaijani Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ilham Aliyev on November 9 signed a statement to end the war in Karabakh after almost 45 days. Under the deal, the Armenian side returned all the seven regions surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, having lost a part of Karabakh itself in hostilities.
