Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Ilhamgizi / The statement made by the Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO) on 15 March says that the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia in Geneva with the participation of the Co-chairs of the OSCE Mink Group once again demonstrated the pro-Armenian positions of the mediators.

The negotiations focused on several principles of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement. Debates were organized on the issue of withdrawal of the Armenian troops from then regions around Nagorno-Karabakh and presentation of intermediate status to the separatist regime and creation of conditions for their relations with the international organizations. "As seen, the Co-chairs of the OSCE Mink Group do not want to recognize the fact of occupation of the Azerbaijani lands by Armenia and try to draw away the attention from the occupation fact, support Armenian occupation by giving intermediate status to the separatist regime in Nagorno-Karabakh," the statement says.

KLO considers that all issues discussed during the negotiations are contrary to the interests of Azerbaijan. The Co-chairs unambiguously try to satisfy the requirements of the Armenian side, implement their claims. Azerbaijan should refuse such negotiations and release its occupied territories through military way.
