Azerbaijani parliament's vice-speaker accuses Armenia of unconstructive position
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 7/ Trend, M. Aliyev /
All the statements made by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan on the opening of the airport in Khankendi and delusional statements that Nagorno Karabakh will never belong to Azerbaijan, demonstrate the unconstructive approach of Yerevan to resolve the conflict, Vice-Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Bahar Muradova said.
Armenia's position does not coincide with the position of peaceful settlement of the conflict, she told media.
"Sargsyan exposes himself and his policy by this act," she said. "Azerbaijani people, the state and the president will take all actions to return the occupied lands including Nagorno-Karabakh. Let Sargsyan have no doubt."
The Armenian side plans to open the airport in Khankendi in May. Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan stated that he will be the first passenger of an aircraft, which fly from Khankendi.
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 and the surrounding regions.
