Expert: Foreign Ministers likely to focus on Madrid Principles during Moscow talks

An expert at Russian Academy of Sciences’ Oriental Studies Institute believes Madrid Principles will be the focus of the oncoming meeting between Armenian, Russian and Azerbaijani Foreign Ministers, as suggested by April 14 OSCE Minsk Group statement.

As Andrei Areshev told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, the negotiation process is still monitored by the U.S. which doesn’t conceal its interest to Karabakh conflict settlement on certain terms. “In this situation, Russian diplomacy is up against a complicated task, considering the standstill the talks are in.”

“Agreements to achieve of stability on the front line, as well as development of mechanisms preventing large-scale collisions would be the best way out,” the expert said.
