Armenian President Serzh Sargsian met with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliev in Sochi today with the mediation of Russia’s President Dmitri Medvedev. The meeting ended in an agreement on the preamble to Karabakh deal.
“”Today, the main result was the agreement, which although we have some parts of the document that are not object of mutual consent, all the sides will prepare their concrete proposals, their concrete wording of all these parts, which will be worked into the text,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after the meeting, adding, that the presidents have agreed on the ‘preamble’ of the Karabakh agreement.
The United States welcomed the ruling by Armenia’s Constitutional Court late on Friday, effectively dismissing Turkey’s claims that it runs counter to the Turkish-Armenian fence-mending agreements, RFE/RL reports.
Turkey had been inventing all sorts of non-existing ‘preconditions, limitations’ in Armenian Constitutional Court’s ruling on the Armenia-Turkey normalization protocols, in an attempt to back away from the rapprochement process while laying the blame on Armenia. UPDATED
