Russia MFA: Armenian, Russian, Azerbaijani spiritual leaders’ meeting is important format for overcoming problems

The trilateral meeting of the spiritual leaders of Armenia, Russia, and Azerbaijan is another important format for overcoming problems, building a climate of trust, as well as the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations. Maria Zakharova, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, stated this during a press briefing Thursday.

"This meeting is not the first; contacts between the spiritual leaders have been maintained for decades. They differ in reliability," she added.

According to Zakharova, Wednesday’s aforesaid trilateral meeting in Moscow will serve to normalize Armenian-Azerbaijani relations and improve the general situation in the South Caucasus—including strengthening trust, resolving urgent humanitarian issues, and preserving cultural and religious heritage sites.
