Moscow expects that at the meeting of the leaders of the Russian Federation, Azerbaijan and Armenia in Sochi it will be possible to outline promising directions for the normaliыation of relations between Baku and Yerevan. This was announced to TASS by the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Andrei Rudenko.

'Like all people who live in these two countries, in Russia, in the South Caucasus region, we expect for the long-awaited peace and stability in the region to come sooner,' said Rudenko.

'The meeting as a whole is aimed at summing up certain results of the past year after the signing of the Trilateral Ceasefire Agreement on November 9, to see what has been done and what can be done next to advance the peace process... how to advance the process of normalisation between the countries as a whole. We hope that at this meeting the leaders of the three countries that signed the agreement will outline these promising areas,' said Rudenko, answering a question about Moscow's expectations from a meeting in Sochi between Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Prime Minister Armenia Nikol Pashinyan.

The Russian diplomat added that in the settlement process in the Karabakh region, problems remain that are known to everyone: 'They also concern the unblocking of transport communications, they relate to the delimitation of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, where, unfortunately, from time to time we witness certain armed incidents and people are even dying.'
