"Practically speaking, I don’t see any differences, because I see the genuine desire of Russia and European Union to help to normalize relations between the two countries," President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with the Spanish El Pais newspaper, APA reports.

"Otherwise, they wouldn’t spend time with us and spend hours in these negotiations. Russia and EU are one of the main international actors. There is a lot of things for them to do, very broad agenda. If they spent time and efforts and not once but regularly, to convene with leaders of Azerbaijan and Armenia, to discuss these issues that means that their genuine desire is to help. And we appreciate that. We don’t see any kind of rivalry here though some may think that a kind of competition. Not at all. As far as we are concerned, we see that these efforts are complementary, these efforts can support the peace process and also I know that there have been interaction between President Putin and President Michel discussing many issues, including the relation between Azerbaijan and Armenia. So, I think that these efforts of international community of institutions and countries which are interested in long-lasting peace, may result in something very positive. Because after so many years of occupation and hostility international players definitely should support the process. Also if Armenia agrees to engage with us in elaborating the peace treaty, of course, we will need an international expertise. We will need international partners which will help us to formulate the chapters, to formulate the basic principles and to find a solution. So, my expectations are related to this. Of course, everything will depend on how today’s trilateral meeting will go. But our position is clear, we came here to strengthen the positive dynamic," the head of the state emphasized.
