(Itar-Tass) - Russia is ready to become a guarantor of implementing agreements on Nagorno Karabakh by Armenia and Azerbaijan, Russian President Vladimir Putin told a news conference on Sunday.
"The two countries should reach a compromise and Russia together with its partners is ready to become a guarantor of implementing the agreements," he said.
Putin recalled that "most G8 countries try to help settle the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to a certain degree," he said. French President Jacques Chirac and U.S. President George W. Bush are actively engaged in this process, he said.
"We want Armenia and Azerbaijan find a reasonable decision. We will not impose our decision on them," he said.
