Any attempt to return to the past is doomed to failure, NKR President tells Minsk Group Co-Chairs

On 22 November President of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic Bako Sahakyan received co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group Robert Bradtke (USA), Igor Popov (Russia) and Jacques Faure (France), who arrived in Stepanakert the day before, Central Information Department of the Office of the NKR President reported.

Issues related to the Azerbaijani-Karabakh conflict settlement and the latest regional developments were discussed during the meeting.

Bako Sahakyan said the glorification of the criminal who perfidiously decapitated the Armenian officer, politicization of humanitarian issues, militaristic and terrorist rhetoric of Azerbaijan is unacceptable, adding that it was one of the most serious blows to the negotiation process.

Within this context the President urged the mediators to take appropriate measures to bring Azerbaijan to a constructive path.

President Sahakyan once again underlined that official Stepanakert favors peaceful settlement of the conflict, restoration of the full format of the negotiation process under the auspices of the OSCE Minsk Group.

Bako Sahakyan reiterated that the conflict settlement will be possible only when the reality is taken into consideration, when efforts are concentrated on the causes rather than consequences, noting that any attempt to return to the past is doomed to failure.

NKR Foreign Minister Karen Mirzoyan, Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk, other officials were present at the meeting.
