He said also Russia had several times opined on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. В"Moscow greets peaceful political settlement of this conflict. Alongside the US and France, Russia is a co-chair of OSCE Minsk Group. I know OSCE Minsk Group is regularly talking to Azerbaijan and Armenia on the matterВ", - Ivanov added.
