Lavrov also noted that Baku has confirmed its readiness to resolve all issues in accordance with a series of trilateral statements by Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.

“In my opinion, progress (ed. - in the settlement process) will depend on how honestly the trilateral agreements are implemented,” Lavrov emphasized.

At the same time, Lavrov said that Moscow is ready to continue  supporting both the unblocking of all communication channels in the region, and the demarcation of the border and, accordingly, in the preparation of a peace treaty.

Lavrov recalled that to help resolve the issue, Russia has appointed an ambassador with special assignments, who has already visited Baku and was planning to visit Yerevan. “Our colleagues in Yerevan haven't confirmed his visit,” Lavrov said. 

He also emphasized that Russia follows the statements of the Armenian leadership and, taking them into account, will plan its own practical steps.
