(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, December 8 . Armenia doesn't
have a clear position on how it understood the Alma-Ata Protocol
[of 1991], the Spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria
Zakharova said on December 8 during a weekly briefing in Moscow,
“Sergey Lavrov explained everything in details at the press
conference [in Moscow on December 1, 2022]. There is nothing more
to say. It's necessary to understand the unified position of the
state on this issue and then we'll be able to publicly discuss the
details,” Zakharova noted.
“Lately we have seen many different interpretations of certain
things. We want to basically understand the position of Yerevan on
these aspects,' she said.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that
Armenia's endorsing the Alma-Ata Protocol at the quadrilateral
Prague meeting [held in October 2022] resolves the status issue of
Azerbaijani Karabakh without reservation.
'The Alma-Ata Protocol declares that all the USSR countries
respect the inviolability of the existing borders. In other words,
the Karabakh Autonomous Region was unambiguously part of the
Azerbaijani SSR, and Azerbaijan, Armenia, France, as well as
President of the European Council Charles Michel, by approving this
issue, decided the matter of how to approach the matter of status,
as far as Karabakh goes,' Lavrov had said.
