    West does not want to bring peace to Armenia, Russia's Lavrov says

    Western countries are not trying to bring peace and stability to Armenia and the South Caucasus as a whole, their task is to squeeze out Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told TASS in an exclusive interview.

    "Now Armenia is facing a number of challenges. And it will not be possible to solve them with the help of Western players. The US and the EU, unlike Russia, are not trying to bring peace and stability to the country and the South Caucasus as a whole," the top Russian diplomat pointed out.

    "Their task is quite different: to squeeze out Moscow and other regional players, to create a new hotbed of tension, following the example of the Balkans, the Middle East and Ukraine," Lavrov added.

    At the same time, the Russian foreign minister emphasized that "the way out of the difficult situation is obvious: to implement the trilateral agreements of Yerevan, Baku and Moscow at the highest level.".
