Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia was ready to deploy troops to the Armenia-Azerbaijan border to quell tensions between the two countries over the blockade of a key road route between Armenia and the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region.
Lavrov said Russia could send a mission to the region within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CTSO), a Moscow-led military alliance of which Armenia, but not Azerbaijan, is a member.
Lavrov also said the idea of a European Union mission to the region would be counterproductive.
