TASS, October 30. The deployment of Russian peacekeepers could be an "optimal solution" to the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph published on Friday.
"I am in favor of bringing Russian peacekeepers into the conflict zone," Pashinyan said. "But the problem is that the deployment of peacekeeping forces from the Russian Federation in the conflict zone must be approved by all parties to the conflict," he added.
The prime minister also noted that, in his opinion, Europe should make more efforts to achieve the end of Turkey's support for Azerbaijan.
On October 24, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan announced that Yerevan supports the idea of deploying peacekeeping forces in Nagorno-Karabakh. The Armenian side believes that such a step would allow reaching a ceasefire in the region and then consolidating such a regime.
