Issues on creation transport hub in the South Caucasus will promote the improvement of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan after recent war in Karabakh, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said at the meeting with Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev on Monday.
“We are genuinely interested in the normalization of relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia. We consider that the joint work on focusing on economic aspects of going out from this protracted conflict on time creates optimal frames for it,” Lavrov said.
He said people must feel that the situation is really improving in the Karabakh conflict zone.
“Three vice prime ministers – of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia – in the sidelines of the task group set by the leaders of the three countries meet regularly, consider the political aspects connected with the arrangements of the leaders on unblocking all the economic and transport communications in the South Caucasus. It is potentially very serious transport hub which will be of significance not only for this region,” Russian FM said.
