BAKU—Russia anticipates that Armenia and Azerbaijan will resume the negotiations for resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict after a new government is formed in Armenia following the snap parliamentary elections there, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during a session the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) foreign ministerial summit being held in the Azerbaijani capital.

“Yesterday I had a lengthy and detailed conversation with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. We have felt his sincere inclination to resume the negotiations and find a constructive solution. Russia, as a friendly partner to Armenia and Azerbaijan and an OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chair country, will do everything to create the necessary conditions for reaching a mutual concession,” said Lavrov.

Lavrov said that pervious talks were held between the leaders and foreign ministers of the two countries, but they took place before the elections in Armenia.

“And now, when this stage has already passed, the formation of a cabinet is expected, and I think after that Armenia will be ready to resume the negotiation process with Azerbaijan and the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs,” explained Lavrov.

    Mr. Lavrov tell your boss that peace talks supposed to be ended in 1994 when Axeris run out of breath. Coward Ilham Aliyev was hiding in his daddy’s basement in Nakhichevan!

    Why cant the Russians grow a pair. For effs sake! Armenia is an unwavering ally of Russia, but Russia always likes to play the angles. If Armenia was allowed to split azerbaijan with Russia & Iran, that region would be MUCH more stable. MUCH MUCH MUCH MORE! Besides, the oils fields in the Caspian were discovered by Armenians. The ENTIRE Azeri oil industry was founded by Armenians!
