The solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is one of the absolute priorities of Russian foreign policy, said Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“We cannot be indifferent to what is happening in our neighbourhood. Interested in how to restore peace and tranquility, the borders were opened, returned refugees, resumed trade and economic relations. That is why the solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is among our top foreign policy priorities”, — said the head of the Russian foreign policy Department in interview to Agency “Azeri Press”.

He also noted that “the Karabakh issue is always the center of attention of international mediators engaged in both collective and independent efforts to solve this problem.”
