Postado Novembro 14, 2017

Expert on Iranian studies Armen Israyelyan says this time the talk is about the question of a reporter of the Azerbaijani APA news agency addressed to Qassemi related to the Armenian foreign minister's visit to Israel.

"I am planning to visit Yerevan and Baku at the beginning of next week. Armenia builds its political relations, and we have no plan to interfere in that country's internal affairs, but, knowing Israel, we are confident that its actions are not directed towards establishment of stability, therefore, we urge our Armenian friends to carefully follow Israel's actions in the region, we are convinced that Armenia is informed about this issue".

Russia, along with the US and France, is a co-chair country of the OSCE Minsk Group established to broker a peace to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

At the meeting in Geneva on October 16, organized by the OSCE Minsk Group, the presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia agreed to take measures to intensify the negotiation process on the settlement of the conflict and to take additional steps to reduce tensions along the frontline. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
