“This matter is at the personal focus of the RF President,” Lavrov said. “We regularly meet (…) with both the Azerbaijani and the Armenian colleagues, at ministerial level.
“Indeed, I agree that virtually all [respective] components and arrangements are already on the [negotiating] table. We need to find some wording (…), since, in fact, we are very close.
