The issue on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will be put for the discussions of a meeting of G8 in St.-Petersburg, Novruz Mammadov, the head of the Foreign Relationships Department of the Presidents Apparat, told Trend in an exclusive interview. There is no doubt that the United State and Russia would like to put the issue to the consideration of the heads of states of G8, he added.
Touching upon further steps in the negotiation processes Mammadov noted that the absence of information. Now it is summer and representatives of many international organizations and bodies go on for holiday. So, the schedule of meetings and visit is unknown.
Mammadov voiced his opinion in respect to last statement by the US Ambassador Matthew Bryza, OSCE Minsk Group co-chair. He has recently stated that the mediators held the peace dialogue to a definite stage, and now the Presidents of Azerbaijan and Armenia are to take resolution. The co-chairs speak of it to shape a public opinion and boost the Presidents responsibility for taking necessary steps. It all right only by 50%, as the co-chairs making statement sin this respect unfortunately equal Azerbaijan and Armenia. Azerbaijan is a country imposed to occupation, while Armenia is an occupant country, so if they were just they should say that Armenia must take right resolution and undertake the responsibility. In exchange to these crimes and the occupation of the Azerbaijani territory Armenia should take a right position and withdraw the army from these occupied territories. There is no other way, he underlined.
