Presidents of Armenia and Azerbaijan have adopted a declaration expressing mutual agreement to continue talks on peaceful settlement of Nagorny Karabakh conflict.
Following a round of one-on-one talks between Serge Sargsyan and Ilham
Aliyev earlier today, the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan took part in tri-lateral talks, joined by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
As a result of today’s meetings the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan have expressed their readiness to seek a “peaceful resolution” to the Nagorny Karabakh conflict, based on “binding international guarantees.”
According to AFP the two sides have agreed that “the achievement of a peaceful settlement must be accompanied by legally binding international guarantees of all aspects and stages.”
Amid continous talks, that a Karabakh solution is possible within next two-three months, the signing of this declaration seems to add more fuel to the speculations on speedy resolution.
It is also noteworthy, that this initiative of Russia’s Medvedev comes on the wake of presidential elections in the USA. Is Russia trying to prove somehing by this or just trying to use the opportunity to improve it’s image making use of inaction from the side of US?
