Azerbaijan, Baku, 24 April /corr. Trend S.Agayeva / It is impossible to establish two Armenian states and the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict should be settled only within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Such a statement was made by Elkhan Nuriyev, the Head of Strategic Studies Center under the auspices of the Azerbaijan President, during the 7th Eurasian Media Forum which commenced in Almaty on 24 April.
During the second session 'Separatism and self-determination right', Nuriyev made a concrete stance on the Kosovo problem, stating that Azerbaijan does not recognize Kosovo's independence and considers that Kosovo cannot be a precedent for settling other conflicts, including the Armenian-Azerbaijani problem.
The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be settled only within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and international law, said the Head of the Center.
The speech was supported by other participants of the conference, representatives of Russia and Kazakhstan, who stated that the existence of conflicts breaks international laws and standards and the separatism, as a dangerous case, may bring huge serious consequences for all countries, Nuriyev reported to Trend by telephone from Almaty on 24 April.
The two-day forum focuses on the relationships of the leading states with regards to new global contradictions, problems of reaching a compromise of conflicting sides in the Middle East, South Caucasus, Central Asia and Balkans.
