Baku remains committed to trilateral agreements of Azerbaijani, Armenian, Russian leaders - FM

BAKU. Feb 28 (Interfax) - Baku continues to abide by the provisions of the trilateral statements adopted by the leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia and Russia, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said.

"Azerbaijan remains fully committed to rigorously implementing not only the letter but also the spirit of the trilateral statements, above all the one [signed] on November 9-10 [2020], as well as the subsequent documents that were adopted in 2021 and 2022, respectively," Bayramov said at the third meeting of the Russia-Azerbaijan Expert Council in Baku on Tuesday.

The approaches of Baku and Moscow toward promoting a peaceful agenda in the South Caucasus, "turning it into a region of sustainable peace and neutralizing revanchist and unsound competition attempts largely coincide," he said.

When commenting on the talks held with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Tuesday, Bayramov said that "we had a very substantive and interesting discussion."

Lavrov, also speaking at the meeting of the Russia-Azerbaijan Expert Council, said that Russia stands ready to facilitate all aspects of the normalization process between Baku and Yerevan.
