"An important step has been taken in Sochi.
According to the Russian President, by the end of the year, mechanisms on border demarcation and delimitation will be created between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Of course, this will require increased security in the border areas, and the agreements reached are yet to be implemented. However, a positive start is already given," he noted.
According to him the leaders of the three countries stressed the need to launch certain projects as soon as possible to unleash the economic potential of Karabakh.
"The signed statement following the talks once again demonstrates the role of Russia as one of the most effective mediators in the Karabakh settlement. Both Armenia and Azerbaijan are our key allies and partners," he added.
