Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan will be signed based on the Alma-Ata Declaration.
During a joint press conference with his Azerbaijani counterpart Jeyhun Bayramov in Moscow, FM Lavrov said that the Russian draft of the peace treaty has been presented to the sides back in the beginning of this year, which, overall, received a positive reaction. However, the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides have also presented their proposals over the Russian draft. Lavrov said that in autumn, during the meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries in Washington, the Azerbaijani side presented another version of the document, after which the Armenian side presented their version.
“We are ready to provide support, as before, but here it is very important to decide on the main principled issues. In this respect what has been agreed between the leaders of Azerbaijan and Armenia in Prague on October 6, is, of course, very important as they have confirmed their determination to solve all issues based on the UN Charter and the Alma-Ata Declaration of December 1991”, the Russian FM said.
