BAKU, Azerbaijan, January 27. The attempts of
the EU to gain a foothold in Armenia at any cost and to press the
mediation efforts of Russia can damage the fundamental interests of
Armenians and Azerbaijanis in their aspirations to return to the
peaceful development of the region, the statement of Russian
Foreign Ministry said, trend reports via TASS.
'Russia's principled position regarding the consolidation of the
extra-regional factor in the South Caucasus hasn't changed. We do
not see any 'added value' from the supervision of the 'experts' of
the EU over the events in the area of the Armenian-Azerbaijani
border. If Brussels was sincerely interested in peace in the South
Caucasus, it would have agreed on the conditions for the work of
its mission with Azerbaijan,” the statement noted.
According to the statement, the appearance of representatives of
the EU, which was reborn as an appendage of the US and NATO and
pursues a confrontational policy in the CIS region, in the border
areas of Armenia can only bring geopolitical confrontation to the
region and exacerbate existing contradictions.
“Allegedly civilian EU Mission shouldn't be misleading either.
The mission is formed under the Common Security and Defense Policy
of EU with all consequences arising from this,” the statement also
“We are convinced that the key factor of stability and security
in the region for the foreseeable future remains the Russian
peacekeeping contingent deployed in accordance with the trilateral
statement of the leaders of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia dated
November 10, 2020 [following the Second Karabakh War], as well as
the Russian border guards serving on the Armenian frontiers. They
will react to the behavior of the EU observers, taking into account
the development of the situation on the ground,” concluded the
