Special representative of Russian FM on normalization of Baku-Yerevan relations appointed

Ambassador-at-Large Igor Khovaev will continue his work in a new capacity, namely, the special representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on promoting the normalization of relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.

Zakharova recalled that on February 24, Washington and Paris curtailed all contacts with Moscow within the framework of the "troika" of the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group.

"Meanwhile, the real situation in the South Caucasus does not allow any pauses in negotiations. Further consistent steps are required to restore long-term peace and stability in the region, since the U.S. and France have ceased cooperation between the co-chairs," she said.

"In this regard, Ambassador-at-Large Igor Khovaev will continue his work in a new capacity, namely, the special representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation on promoting the normalization of relations between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia. The focus of his attention will be the preparation of the aforementioned peace treaty. We count on the support of the efforts of I. A. Khovaev from our allies and partners in Baku and Yerevan. Open for constructive interaction with other interested players."
