Parties to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must show restraint in order to find an effective solution to the problem, Chairperson of Russia’s Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko said Nov. 21 at a meeting with Armenian Speaker Ararat Mirzoyan in St. Petersburg as part of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly events, Trend reports referring to TASS news agency.
Matviyenko noted that Russia, as part of OSCE activities, is helping to resolve the Karabakh problem.
"The situation is calm in the region, but we are concerned about the rhetoric that doesn’t contribute to creating a favorable atmosphere in the search for a solution to the Karabakh problem,” the chairperson noted. "It seems to me that it is necessary to be more restrained in order to find a compromise solution and move forward, because both in Armenia and in Azerbaijan, people want peace and a normal life for development. We will do everything to effectively fulfill the role of a mediator.”
