A number of additional documents are being prepared for the consideration by our leaders. We would like to pay special attention to the implementation of the agreements at the highest level on the conclusion of a peace treaty between Baku and Yerevan. We are ready to assist this in every possible way, including providing a platform for this signing",

We appreciate that our Azerbaijani friends understand the need to ensure the rights and security of the Armenian population of Karabakh. This is one of the central issues",
Sergey Lavrov said.
