Moscow, for its part, encourages international organizations to more actively help the residents of Nagorno-Karabakh and actively work with them.
“It was recognized by all (participants in the negotiations in Armenia – ed.) that this statement is an uncontested way of resolving the situation, which acquired a very, very acute character a few weeks ago”,- RIA Novosti quoted Lavrov as saying.
He noted that “attempts to question this statement not only within the country, but also abroad, are unacceptable”.
The parties to the talks, he said, reaffirmed their determination to do everything to make this statement work.
“The Armenian leaders – we also met with the President of Armenia – both he and the Prime Minister stressed that this statement helped to solve the most serious problems, helped to save lives. And they are fully committed to the implementation of this agreement in the future”, – the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
