Russia (bbabo.net), - Vladimir Putin called the statements of French colleague Emmanuel Macron about the role of Russia in the settlement of the Karabakh conflict and Armenian-Azerbaijani relations incorrect and unacceptable.
Speaking today, October 14, at an enlarged meeting of the CIS Council of Heads of State in Astana, the head of the Russian state admitted that he was surprised to read some of the statements of the President of France, voiced as a result of the quadripartite meetings in Prague.
The President of Russia believes that in these words there is no understanding of the very course of the conflict, there is no information about the position of the parties. The Russian leader suggested that the owner of the Elysee Palace is simply not informed about the position of the parties to the Karabakh conflict.
“Therefore, they sounded incorrect or perverted, and therefore unacceptable,” Putin said.
He suggested that there would be an opportunity to further discuss this issue with the French leader himself.
Russia has always sincerely sought to resolve any conflicts, including those related to Karabakh and around it, the head of state stressed.
“Of course, we welcome the mediation efforts of anyone, the main thing is that they contribute to calming the situation and benefit all participants in unresolved contradictions and conflicts,” Putin summed up.
As reported by bbabo.net, Emmanuel Macron previously gave an interview to the France 2 TV channel, in which he touched on the role of Russia in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in a very ambiguous light. The French leader, in particular, argued that "Russia took advantage of this conflict, intervened and clearly played the game of Azerbaijan with the complicity of Turkey, and then returned there to weaken Armenia."
Last Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out the unacceptability of the statements of the President of France.
