MOSCOW (Panorama.am)—A compromise solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should not come to the detriment of the people of Armenia and Azerbaijan, and, certainly, nor for the people living in Artsakh, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated at a press briefing on Thursday.

According to the readout of the briefing published by the foreign ministry website, Zakharoiva noted, the official sides to the Karabakh conflict have own approaches to the settlement.

“The resolution of such conflicts implies search of compromises, meaning to help bring the positions of the conflicting parties closer, no matter how diametrically opposed they are,” Zakharova noted, adding international diplomacy is designed to provide solutions to seemingly unsolvable conflicts.

“We share the view that the [settlement] process requires moving forward which is why we have activated our interactions, taking place in different formats,” said the Russian foreign ministry spokesperson, adding that Russia does its utmost to find a compromise:

“The quicker a resolution is found, the better it will be,” Zakharova added.

    The best for Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova to shut up and stop giving hope to Axeri People and their corrupted oil man, and leave Artsakh alone!

    Beautiful nonsense by a beautiful speaker for a beautiful place in an ugly situation.

    Does this idiot even know what she is saying? How do you do your utmost to find a compromise WHILE selling the sworn enemy of your ally weapons in billions of dollars? Isn’t providing weapons to sadistic coward Aliyev contrary to achieving a compromise? Armenians must never trust anyone but themselves and they must push forward their legitimate agenda from a position of power and ready to use any means at their disposal to accomplish it.

    Russia knows the History, and Stalin’s satiric decision of donating Artsakh to Azerbaijan.

    I don’t know what Zakharova means by compromise, but the return of any part of the 7 liberated regions would be strategically and existentially “detrimental” for Armenians in Artsakh, Armenia and all around the world.
    Russia must see that Azerbaijan’s war against Armenians, fully supported by Turkey and its allies, is eventually directed against none other than Russia!… Panturkism!

    Maria Zakharova, Russia and the free world have to be open fair and honest brokers WHAT ELESS DO YOU WANT FROM ARMENIA??? RUSSIA AS THE SUCCESSOR OF SOVIET UNION DISTRIBUTED OUT TERRITORIES TO TURKEY, AZERBAIJAN AND GEORGIA. RUSSIA AS AN HONOUST BROKER SHOULD HAVE RETURNED THOSE TERRITORIES TO ARMENIA (OTHERWISE WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT FROM ARMENIA?) RUSSIA AND THE FREE WORLD AS HONEST BROKERS SHOULD RECOGNISE WILSONIAN ARMENIAN BOUNDARIES. ARMENIA AS HONEST AND RELIABLE JUNIOR PARTNER TO THE FREE WORLD WITH ITS HISTORY AND RELIABILITY DESERVES THIS FROM THE WORLD AND SHE HAS PROVED BY HER RELIABLE PARTNERSHIP. RELIABLE AND HONEST WORLD AND HONEST BROKERS THIS IS AN OPPURTUNE OCCASION AS WORLD LEADERS DON’T LOSE THIS VALUABLE OPPORTUNITY. IN THIS DAY AND AGE AS YOU CAN SEE ARMENIA HAS NOTHING ELSE TO OFFER EXCEPT BEING THE RELIABLE JUNIOR EXEMPLARY PARTNER TO THE W O. R L D
