Russian President Dmitry Medvedev hopes for full normalization of
relations between Armenia and Russia.

"Naturally, a complicated process like rapprochement meets different
response inside the countries involved. Still, I hope Armenia and
Turkey will find necessary solutions to fully normalize bilateral
ties," Russian President said at news conference after the meeting
with his Turkish counterpart.

As Mr. Medvedev noted, Armenia-Turkey reconciliation "will help
establishment of regional stability."

"Parties to Karabakh conflict have made serious progress but they
should not stop at what has been achieved," RIA Novosti cited Dmitry
Medvedev as saying.
