Armenian FM notes progress on certain aspects of peace agreement with Azerbaijan

YEREVAN. May 19 (Interfax) - Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan has noted that progress has been made on certain articles of a draft peace agreement with Azerbaijan.

"I would like to note the progress made on several articles, several topics of the proposed peace agreement. I would also like to mention the emerging understanding on some other subjects, such as the opening [and] unblocking of communications and further delimitation based on the Almaty Treaty," Mirzoyan said at a trilateral meeting with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on Friday.

The sides should keep working on the details of the parameters for the delimitation process, he said.

"I would also like to note the importance of preventing further escalation and the inadmissibility of using force, which our leaders have agreed on. Armenia remains committed to every trilateral statement of our leaders. Our work will be constructive," Mirzoyan said.

He thanked Russia for the invitation and for arranging the new round of talks on normalizing Armenian-Azerbaijani relations.
