Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is expected to visit Baku soon, the Russian foreign ministry said, but the date of his arrival has yet to be determined.
“I can say that this visit will take place, and as soon as the date is determined with our Azerbaijani colleagues, we will certainly inform you about the date and the program of the visit,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said at a briefing in Moscow.

of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in late February.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin
