'The incident on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border has no direct relation to the Nagorno-Karabakh problem.' This was stated today at a briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, Eurasia Diary reports citing Azeri Daily. 

According to her, Russia is ready to help the process of delimitation and demarcation of borders between Azerbaijan and Armenia.

According to her, the main reason for the border incident is the lack of international legal registration of borders, which was inherited from Soviet times. She believes that this problem should be solved exclusively by peaceful, negotiated means.

'We see the launch of the border delimitation process with its subsequent demarcation as a long-term solution. Russia is ready to help this in every possible way. The Russian side is closely involved in resolving the incident at the border, helping to reduce tensions. We maintain regular contacts with Baku and Yerevan at the highest and high levels,' said Zakharova.

She noted that both countries are at the beginning of the path to restoring full dialogue and mutual trust.

'Russia is making active mediation efforts to normalise relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan, stabilise the situation in the South Caucasus, and turn it into a zone of prosperity. Russian peacekeepers guarantee peace and security in Karabakh. A trilateral working group co-chaired by the vice-prime ministers of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia is engaged in unblocking transport and economic ties in the region,' Zakharova added.
