Foreign Minister of Armenia Does not Consider the Participation of Armenia in Negotiation Process on Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict Wrong
The Foreign Minister of Armenia, Vardan Oskanyan, does not consider the participation of Armenia in the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict wrong, Novosti-Armenia reports.
The Minister said in his interview with Public Television of Armenia that Armenia should assume responsibility for the talks unless Azerbaijan recognizes that Karabakh should be a participant in the negotiation process.
According to Oskanyan, the concluding document cannot be legal if a representative of Nagorno-Karabakh does not sign it. "There cannot be two opinions here. It is a dispute between Azerbaijan and Karabakh, and Armenia has simply undertaken certain responsibilities to hold talks on behalf of Nagorno-Karabakh because Azerbaijan denies the right of Karabakh's participation in the talks," the Minister said.
In addition, the Foreign Minister of Armenia considers the accusations by the Armenian opposition that it is a big mistake in Armenia's foreign policy wrong.
He said that he does not accept such a mistake because Karabakh is not out the negotiation process. "There have been no cases where the Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group did not visit Khankendi or Yerevan to meet with the Nagorno-Karabakh government," Oskanyan said.
