Speaking officially on the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Minister emphasized that primarily Armenia should withdraw its Armed Forces from occupied Azerbaijani territories. International peace-keeping forces should then be positioned and mine-clearing activities carried out. Refugees and internally displaced persons should then be allowed to return to their native land.
