YEREVAN, October 24. /TASS/. Russia is a trusted and pro-active mediator concerning resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Armenian President Armen Sarkissian’s press office said on Saturday, citing his interview with Egypt’s Al-Ahram Weekly.
“In the context of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Russia is a trusted and pro-active mediator between the conflicting sides. Russia plays a crucial role here, and it demonstrated its commitment to finding a peaceful solution to the conflict by brokering a ceasefire on 10 October. We must admit that this was a courageous and timely move, even though the Azeri side remained aggressively stubborn and destructive,” Sarkissian said.
