Armenia-Azerbaijan Tensions Hinder Unblocking of Roadways, Says Russian Deputy PM
Russian Deputy PM Alexy Overchuk told reporters on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok, that recent tension along the Armenian-Azerbaijan border has hindered efforts of the trilateral working group to unblock transportation arteries in Transcaucasia.
TASS reports that Overchuk said that the next meeting of the working group, comprised of the deputy prime ministers of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, will take place when conditions are favorable.
“Of course, any aggravation always negatively affects our work. They delay our work back. Time passes before we return, sit down, and start working further. The negotiations are not suspended, they continue,” Overchuk said.
