The EU mission on the Azerbaijan-Armenia border will be counterproductive without Baku's consent, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a briefing.

Lavrov confirmed Russia's readiness to send a mission of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) to the border of Azerbaijan and Armenia but noted that the Armenian side prefers to negotiate with the EU.

"Instead of making the situation on the border more secure, such a mission can be counterproductive if it takes place without the consent of Baku," the Russian FM said.
