“Obviously, the priority of the work of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Ararat Mirzoyan at the moment is to resolve the issues of resuming the unimpeded operation of the Lachin corridor in accordance with the tripartite statement of November 9, 2020 and the problems that have arisen as a result of the humanitarian crisis in Nagorno-Karabakh, and, based on this , the Armenian side asked to postpone the meeting scheduled in Moscow,” Hunanyan said.

At the same time, we inform you that as a sign of the constructiveness of the Armenian side in the process of normalizing relations with Azerbaijan, regardless of the circumstances of the meeting, new proposals from the Armenian side on a document on the normalization of relations were submitted to Azerbaijan,” he added.
