“Russia, as a neighbor of Azerbaijan and a close ally of Armenia, certainly plays a special part in this region. It is natural. We hope that Russia will continue its efforts for security in the region and will take measures to ensure lasting peace. At the same time, our expectations are that Russia will not arm Armenia,” the President said.
Aliyev pointed out that Azerbaijan informed Russia about its concerns.
“We do not see yet, nor we observe it. There were some statements from Russia. It is an alarming issue,” the president noted.
Azerbaijan expects Russia to implement all the provisions of the Karabakh agreement, “since the trilateral statement was signed by the leaders of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia,” Aliyev added.
“Most of its provisions have already been implemented. But there are some issues that are still open,” he concluded.
