The issue of unblocking transport in the region must be in focus, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said, Trend reports.

Bayramov made the remark during a press conference with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

According to the minister, preparatory work in the region is very intensive. Six meetings of the tripartite working group have already been held under the auspices of its chairpersons.

“There is a lot of work, and expert subgroups are working on these issues. According to existing information, there is more progress on some issues than on others,” Bayramov said.

“This is also influenced by the internal political situation in Armenia, but we would like to note that this aspect of the trilateral agreement is very important. We believe that more attention should be paid to this point of the agreement and I am sure that soon we will witness the start of work on some transport routes,” he said.

In turn, Lavrov said that the issue of unblocking communications is being solved taking into account all interested parties, not only Azerbaijan and Armenia but also Russia, Turkey, and Iran as neighboring countries.
