BAKU, Azerbaijan, October 26. Russia is still willing to host the foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia, with the possibility of a full-fledged trilateral summit provided Yerevan demonstrates political commitment, Spokesperson for Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said during a weekly briefing, Trend reports.
"The mistake of Yerevan's betting on Western mediation in Armenian-Azerbaijani normalization and attempts to scuttle the implementation of a set of trilateral agreements is becoming more and more obvious," she added.
In order to ensure the provisions of the Trilateral Statement [signed by Azerbaijani, Armenian and Russian leaders following the 2020 second Karabakh war], to stop large-scale provocations in the Karabakh economic region, to disarm and withdraw formations of the Armenian armed forces from the territories of Azerbaijan, to neutralize their military infrastructure, to ensure the safety of the peaceful population returning to the territories liberated from occupation, civil servants involved in construction and reconstruction work, and Azerbaijan's military personnel, as well as to restore the constitutional order of the Republic of Azerbaijan, anti-terrorist measures have been conducted in the region.
Within the framework of the activities, positions of Armenian armed forces formations, their long-term firing points, as well as military means and military facilities, were disrupted using high-precision weapons in the front line and in depth. Civilians and civilian infrastructure were not targets; only legitimate military targets were disabled.
