Aim of OSCE and Minsk Group Representatives : Visit to Compel Azerbaijan to A Compromise
Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr. S.Ilhamgizi / The Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO) has reported that the main aim of the visit from the ruling chairman of the OSCE and the co-chairman of the Minsk group to the South Caucasus regions is to compel Azerbaijan to a compromise.
The international organizations and the Minsk group attempt to compel Azerbaijan to adopt requirements due to the referendum on definition of the Nagorno Karabakh status and to alocate peaceful forces in the region instead of the liberation in the 5 neighboring regions of the Nagorno Karabakh.
Azerbaijan must not give its approval on holding a referendum and allocation of peaceful forces in the area of the conflict. The referendum will result in complete lose of the Nagorno Karabakh. The integrity of Azerbaijan cannot be the issue of senseless negotiations and political bargaining," the KLO reported.
The Armed forces of Armenia must liberate the occupied Azerbaijani territories. The allocation of peaceful forces on the Armenian Azerbaijani borders might be realized only after liberation. The peace negotiations should focus on this principle otherwise, it shall result in a refusal to hold any negotiations.
The conflict between the two countries of South Caucasus appeared in 1988 due to the territorial claims of Armenia against Azerbaijan. Armenia has occupied 20% of the Azerbaijani land including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven Districts of the countries surrounding it. Since 1992 to the present time, these territories have been under the occupation of the Armenian Forces. In 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a cease-fire agreement at which time the active hostilities ended. The Co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group ( Russia, France and the USA) held peaceful negotiations.
