The Russian diplomat underlined the Moscow meetings of Azerbaijani and Armenian Presidents with participation of Russian President. He said the documents adopted and agreements reached during these meetings serve the improvement in the practical issues concerning the process of settlement.
“I would like to note the initiatives of Azerbaijani and Armenian ambassadors to Russia to pay joint visits to Yerevan, Baku and Nagorno Karabakh to establish positive relations between the countries. They are neighbors. Of course, there are problems, but it is important to bring the relations to positive path,” he said.
Karasin said Russia recognizes Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity. He said the August happenings damaged Georgia’s territorial integrity because official Tbilisi passed a decision to stop the negotiations and attack South Ossetia, recognized as a conflicting party by the international community.
“How can we talk about Georgia’s territorial integrity after that? The present authorities of Tbilisi violated it,” he said.
Karasin added that recognition of independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russia is not connected with the principle of territorial integrity.
“As regards Georgia, we are speaking of the aggression and violation of the international settlement process. Russia has always recognized and recognizes the principles of the international law,” he said.
