Baku: Armenia not interested in just and peaceful conflict settlement

Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 22 / Trend S. Agayeva /

Armenia's destructive reaction to Azerbaijan's any constructive proposal once again shows that the Armenian leadership is not interested in just and peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through negotiations, Head of the Foreign Relations Department at the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Novruz Mammadov told Trend on Saturday.

In his interview with media, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said that it is necessary to leave the uncoordinated moments to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and to move to the negotiations on a big peace agreement. Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian met with the co-chairmen and said that Azerbaijan's position contradicts the essence of negotiations.

By this step Azerbaijan once again demonstrates the international community and co-chairing countries its will to resolve the conflict only by peaceful means and through negotiations, Mammadov said. "So, Azerbaijan is ready to take all steps to rapidly resolve this conflict."

"You know that Azerbaijan demonstrates its will and determination in negotiation processes conducted over the last years, by proposing all the possible variants in all spheres and areas," Mammadov said. "Armenia's main objective is to delay the process by imitating the negotiation process, and thus, supposedly, to gain time. This is Armenia's tragedy. They cannot understand that no matter how long the time would last, it does not work and will never work in Armenia's favor. But they think that they win because they want to gain time while pursuing their own ambitions and interests to remain in power. The Armenian side has repeatedly demonstrated that it is not interested in resolving the conflict."

Commenting on Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's last statement on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Mammadov said that the statement is a result of the theoretical and pragmatic analysis. It shows that this conflict can be resolved.

In his statement, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Moscow continues providing support in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. But both peoples must try to reach agreement. However, President Medvedev noted that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is one of several frozen conflicts in Europe, which may be solved.

He said that it is pleasant that President Medvedev has taken serious steps to resolve the conflict over the last two years.

"Despite a number of steps were taken, I think that the Russian side is very well aware that the Armenian side has repeatedly violated the process, abandoned the promise or held another position," he said.

"It made attempts and accused Azerbaijan of delaying the conflict and failed negotiations. The Armenian President made a written statement at the last meeting in Kazan that the negotiations are difficult, but there are positive elements and it is necessary to continue negotiating.

But two hours later, Armenian Foreign Minister said the talks were violated and blamed Azerbaijan. You know, they have a very strange sense of dignity. They are always willing to take similar steps. They have no principle. I think that after these statements, all three countries must have a specific position to be able to stop these actions of the Armenian side. They always find new reasons. They will try to delay the negotiations for another 20 years."

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.
