November 2, 2009 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev had a phone
conversation with his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev.

"The Presidents discussed the prospects of bilateral relations,
as well as Russian-Azerbaijani cooperation issues," Kremlin Press
Service reports.

As NEWS.am reported previously, next day after the Protocols' signing,
Azerbaijan and Russia eventually signed gas contract, under which
Azerbaijan has to supply 500 million q.m gas a year to Russia.

According to experts, Russia taking advantage of Turkish-Azerbaijani
relations' tension tries to buy Azerbaijan over. Instead, Russia is
likely to impact Armenia to make concessions in Karabakh issue.
