On January 18, Foreign Minister of Armenia Ara Aivazian held a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
Following the recent phone conversations, the Foreign Ministers touched upon the issues of establishing stability and ensuring security in the region. In the context of the implementation of the trilateral statements of November 9 and January 11, Minister Aivazian once again stressed the priority of fully addressing the humanitarian issues, first of all, the immediate and safe repatriation of prisoners of war, captured citizens and others detained.
Minister Aivazian drew the interlocutor's attention to the importance of preserving the Armenian religious and historical-cultural heritage in the territories of Artsakh that fell under control of Azerbaijan, and the unimpeded involvement of international specialized organizations in that regard.
The interlocutors exchanged views on the Armenian-Russian agenda in bilateral and multilateral formats as well.
