Aliyev Calls for Russia’s Bigger Role in Karabakh Settlement

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–Russia can and must play an important role in the settlement of the Armenian-Azeri conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh–Azerbaijani President Heidar Aliyev is quoted by Itar-Tass during a reception at the Russian embassy on Monday.

The election of Vladimir Putin as the President of Russia enables that country to play an important role in peacemaking–Aliyev said. The further development and strengthening of relations between the two countries much depends on the Karabakh settlement–he stressed. "The people of Azerbaijan wants friendship with Russia–and that requires peace in the Caucasus," he said.
