    Russia to continue mediating between Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kremlin says

    Russia will persevere in its efforts to contribute to a peaceful settlement between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday, TASS reported.

    "The Russian Federation has been pursuing its mediation efforts, acting primarily under the existing trilateral agreements, and is set to continue doing so," Peskov said as he referred to Moscow’s dialogue with both Yerevan and Baku.

    According to Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the situation around the Lachin Corridor with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the sidelines of an informal CIS summit in St. Petersburg on Tuesday. "Talks on the issue will continue," he pledged. "We do find the current tensions around the Lachin Corridor worrisome," he emphasized.

    Commenting on Pashinyan’s idea to invite international peacekeepers to Nagorno-Karabakh, Peskov said that international peacekeeping forces may be involved, provided both parties to the conflict, not only Armenia, agree to that. "Armenia is one of our closest allies, while Azerbaijan is our very precious and dear partner," the Russian presidential spokesman insisted.
