YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 2, ARMENPRESS. As a result of the meeting held in Sochi, a step was taken towards the implementation of the peace agenda, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan said during the joint session of the parliamentary standing committees today, commenting on the results of the Sochi trilateral meeting held between the leaders of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan.
“Can I state that as a result of that meeting a step was taken towards the implementation of the peace agenda? I can say yes, definitely. And it was a very useful and important meeting. Of course, the meeting has both a public and a closed-format part. Very important issues were voiced. You know that before that meeting there were some discussions in Armenia whether Armenia is moving on with the possible optimal option that exists in the field regarding the normalization of the Armenia-Azerbaijan relations and the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. The talk was about to what extent the policy of the officials involved in the negotiations is in the interests of Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh in terms of content. I think that one of the most important nuances of the Sochi meeting was the answer to this question. That answer is not that it did not exist before Sochi, it’s just that the discussions around that issue became maximally public, and we can see publicly and compare to what extent our policy is in accordance with that vision and framework”, the PM said.
