MOSCOW, October 18. / TASS /. The statements of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan that Russia, the United States and France are supplying weapons to Armenia do not contribute to the de-escalation of the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. This opinion was expressed on Sunday by TASS chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky.
“Unfortunately, such statements do not contribute to a peaceful settlement and de-escalation of the situation in the conflict zone. Russia and other states – co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group do not support any of the parties and stand for an end to the bloodshed,” he stressed.
The head of the committee recalled that earlier the leaders of all three countries “issued a special statement calling for a ceasefire; later, negotiations between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan [Zohrab Mnatsakanyan and Jeyhun Bayramov] took place in Moscow, where agreements on an armistice were reached.” “We need to strive for their implementation,” Slutsky stressed.
“Today, everyone should continue to search for political and diplomatic ways to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, not to slip into aggressive rhetoric and mutual accusations,” he summed up.
According to Erdogan, Russia, the United States and France “provide Armenia with all kinds of support in the form of weapons.”
