“We note that the Lachin Corridor should be used only for the purposes specified in this document. We hope that the parties will come to an agreement on the exploitation of mines in the region.
We are in favor of the comprehensive implementation of the entire complex of high-level trilateral agreements aimed at unblocking transport and economic ties in the region, the delimitation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, the preparation of a peace treaty between Baku and Yerevan, and the establishment of contacts between public figures, experts and parliamentarians of the two countries,” Zakharova concluded. .
