Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held a press conference with his Swiss counterpart Didier Burkhalter following their meeting in Moscow, Monday. The conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region as well as other security matters topped the agenda of the meeting.

While addressing the press, Burkhalter stated that "thanks to Russia's efforts the situation has calmed down considerably," before adding, "the region is difficult and the risk of conflict remains." Moreover, the Swiss minister stressed that "a well-organised structure of political dialogue and agreements for a final settlement of the issue" are much needed.

Lavrov said that both countries "are concerned about the escalation in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. We are appealing to both sides to maintain the agreements on the cessation of hostilities and not to violate them."

"And of course, we are interested in seeing positive political progress in the settlement of such a complicated conflict," he added.

A fragile ceasefire is in place in the contested region while both Armenia and Azerbaijan continue to trade allegations as to who set-off the latest round of hostilities that started over a week ago.
