Azerbaijan: Medvedev and Pres. Aliyev talk Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in Baku

Azerbaijan, Baku
April 8, 2016 at 12:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev thanked Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev for Russia’s “timely and very active steps in the de-escalation” of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict during a joint press conference in Baku, Friday. The meeting comes after Medvedev recently met Armenian officials to discuss the conflict currently playing out in disputed region.

Aliyev blamed Armenia for the restart of hostilities in the self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh. He said “Azerbaijan was forced to take measures in response to prevent a military provocation and re-establish the ceasefire regime”. He also regretted that “unfortunately for many years the conflict was unable to be resolved. Periodically we are facing armed provocations from the Armenian side”.

Medvedev underlined Russia’s neutrality in the matter as “the relations with both of the states are extremely important”. He said that “this issue greatly concerns us” and “we hope that the currently established peace will be durable”. Medvedev said the only appropriate way forward is for both sides to “continue talks on settlement issues at the negotiating table”.

A fragile ceasefire is in place the breakaway region while both Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to trade allegations as to who ignited the latest round of hostilities that started one week ago. The exact death toll has not been established but it is believed to be at least 50 dead soldiers, 20 Armenian and 31 Azerbaijani.
