“But due to the friendly relationship that we have with both neighbouring countries, i.e., the Azerbaijan Republic and Armenia, we will continue consultations with all sides to make sure that first, the peace achieved will be fully observed by the warring sides, and second, this peace will be a prelude to a permanent and lasting settlement of differences in the Nagorno-Karabakh region and will delineate the future path to securing the interests of both countries and lead to collective and fair development in a peaceful atmosphere,” he said.

“We hope all regional countries, in tandem with diplomatic efforts to stabilize peace, will try their best to cure these wounds and ease the sufferings of people ravaged by war,” he said.
