Pashinyan, Aliyev, Putin Meeting Kicks off in Moscow
A working group will be created between Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan to address the opening of closed borders in the region and to end the blockade of transport and communication links, said Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday at the start of a meting he is hosting Moscow with Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.
“Special emphasis is required for the opening of economic, trade and transport links in the region,” said Putin in opening remarks at the Kremlins on Monday.
“Of course, Armenia is interested in the possibility of transporting Armenian cargo through the territory of Azerbaijan to the Russian Federation and the Islamic Republic of Iran and vice versa. We are interested in the possibility of the transfer of the Armenian cargo through road and railway transportation to the Russian Federation, whereas to the Islamic Republic of Iran—especially through railway transportation. In this context, Armenia, naturally, is ready to ensure transportation between the eastern part of Azerbaijan and the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic,” said Pashinyan’s spokesperson Mane Gevorgyan on Thursday when reports on Monday’s meeting would neither be confirmed or denied.
