Peskov: Belonging of Nagorno-Karabakh is Determined by the UN Security Council Resolutions
According to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting Turan News, Russia has not changed its position on the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, like other countries, the belonging of this territory has long been determined by the resolutions of the Security Council (Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 confirm the belonging of Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijan – Ed.) Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian President, told reporters on Friday, December 4th. “The belonging of this territory is determined by the relevant resolutions of the Security Council, which are quite old. This is all indicated in the resolutions of the Security Council. Russia has not changed anything. Actually, not a single country has changed anything,” Peskov said, answering the question of whether Russia’s attitude has changed on the status of Karabakh after the war and the agreement of the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation.
In addition to the question of the interaction of the Russian peacekeepers in Karabakh with the parties to the conflict, Peskov was asked who was the main side in Karabakh now. “Actually, there is no main side. There are two conflicting parties – Armenia and Azerbaijan. These are the sides that together with the Russian side signed a well-known declaration,” Peskov added. “The Russian military, as well as the Russian humanitarian mission, which consists not only of the military, are coordinating their actions with both Azerbaijanis and Armenians to fulfill the provisions of this declaration.”
