Europe can Make Considerable Contribution to Settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict: Head of Strategic Research Center at Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, 8 July / Trend , corr S. Agayeva/ Europe can make a significant contribution to the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. "The Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict is a serious challenge not only for Azerbaijan, but for the entire region. The delay of the settlement of the conflict impedes the development and deepening of the enhanced cooperation within the region," Elkhan Nuriyev, head of the Strategic Research Center at the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan said to Trend .
The international organizations and big powers do not recognize the 'independence' of the so-called Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and it shows that the international community supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan, he said. According to Nuriyev, the European political experts understand very well that the lack of considerable progress in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijan conflict is an alarming and destabilizing factor which affects the security of Europe.
"Therefore, Europe is interested in the settlement of the protracted confrontation as soon as possible. Much will depend on the success of the EU bodies' multilateral cooperation with OSCE and Council of Europe to create new opportunities in order to develop constructive dialogue which can lead to the fair and comprehensive settlement of the conflict," Nuriyev said.
