The negotiation process can be resumed only after the elimination of consequences of the Azerbaijani aggression against Nagorno Karabakh, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said during a Q&A session at the National Assembly.
The joint efforts of Armenia and the international community, primarily the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs, are aimed at eliminating the consequences of the large-scale military actions and excluding their reoccurrence in the future.
The Minister said “Armenia has never withdrawn from the negotiation process.” “Armenia has always backed a negotiated, peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict, and it’s not Armenia refusing from meetings,” he said.
“Today Azerbaijan is making void attempts to question the trilateral agreements on ceasefire and its reinforcement. Such attempts were made in Vienna in New York. The Co-Chairs stressed in response that the agreements signed in 1994-1995 remain in force and their provisions should be implemented.
Minister Nalbandian said “it’s time for the international community to take concrete steps to bring Azerbaijan to order, to return it to a constructive field. Only then will it be possible to resume talks.
Edward Nalbandian said the Azerbaijan unleashed war, because it failed in th negotiations. “They tried to gain advantages on the battlefield, but failed again.They will definitely have to return to the negotiating table, because there is no alternative to talks.
