Azerbaijani official: Surrendering positions, Armenia resorts to provocation on front line

Azerbaijan, Baku, June 25 / Trend T.Hajiyev /

Recognizing its weakening positions in the negotiation process over the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict resolution, Armenia resorted to the provocations on the front line, Ruling New Azerbaijan Party (NAP) Deputy Chairman, MP Ali Ahmadov said.

"The Armenian side, adequately to weakening of its position in the negotiation process began to intensively violate the ceasefire. OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs submitted to the sides the updated Madrid principles. In response to the updated Madrid principles, Armenia holds provocation on the front lines," Ahmadov said today.

Immediately after the Azerbaijani, Russian and Armenian presidents - Ilham Aliyev and Dmitry Medvedev and Serzh Sargsyan - met in St. Petersburg, a series of skirmishes along the contact line led to a number of casualties in both the Azerbaijani and Armenian military forces. Azerbaijani soldier Mubariz Ibrahimov was killed as a result.

Ahmadov said the international organizations recognize the inevitability of the liberation of the Azerbaijani lands, as Armenia has already exhausted all the arguments in the negotiation process. "Knowing this, the Armenians have nothing more but to resort to provocations, "he said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
