Russian Ambassador in Baku Welcomes Turkish Initiative

BAKU (Armenpress)–The Russian ambassador to Azerbaijan, Vasili Istartov, on Tuesday welcomed Turkey’s initiative to become more involved in the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

“We all are interested in the resolution of the Karabakh conflict, thus any step made in that direction, including the step of Turkey, must be greeted, of course if these steps are acceptable for all the sides,” the ambassador told journalists.

Istartov’s remarks came in response to a reporter’s question during a press conference in Baku. Istartov was asked to comment on the Turkish President Abdullah Gul’s recent visit to Yerevan to watch a World Cup qualifying match between the Armenian and Turkish national soccer teams.
