Mikhail Meyer: Germany and France set Turks against Armenians hundred years ago

The conflict, which took place between Armenians and Turks in the mid-1910s, was initially misunderstood, therefore it is misunderstood today by a number of historians as the so-called Armenian genocide. While the situation itself wasn't determined by the confrontation between the two peoples on the Ottoman Empire's territory, the President of the Institute of Asia and Africa of the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov, Mikhail Meyer, told Vestnik Kavkaza. The famous scientist admitted that his position on the events of 1915 in Turkey differs from the position of many politicians, which is why they even threatened to sue him for violation of the State Duma's order on recognition of the 'Armenian genocide'. "The situation of 'genocide should be determined not by confrontation between Armenians and Turks, but by the situation which has developed in the political life of that time, because the idea of ​​the war in the Caucasus is not an idea of Turks," Mikhail Meyer noted.

Maria Zakharova: Russia to continue working on Karabakh issue together with other mediators

Russia does not intend to suspend other countries from the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and the St. Petersburg meeting of the presidents of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia proved it, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said during a weekly briefing. "Concerns that Russia is coming up with a new format for the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, pushiing the other co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group away from the negotiation process, limiting it to itself are baseless. The St. Petersburg meeting showed that these are baseless rumors and unprofessional analysis. The sides have used a similar format previously to discuss sensitive issues. Everything happens in close contact with the other co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group," Zakharova stressed.
