Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on 6 July met in Moscow with his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian. Lavrov reiterated that Russia adheres to position outlined in the Deauville statement issued by the Russian, U.S. and French leaders during the G8 Summit.
Lavrov added that the recently approved documents not only confirm commitment to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, but also include agreement on measures to reduce tension, build confidence and prevent incidents along the contact line between the armed forces of Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan.
He recalled that several days ago the OSCE held a regular monitoring on the line of contact. The report presented by monitoring mission in Vienna indicates the number of incidents is decreasing.
