Armenia and Azerbaijan need to resolve safety of flights before opening airport in Khankendi
Azerbaijan, Baku, 29 March /Trend, U.Ismailov/
Prior to opening an airport in Khankendi, Armenia and Azerbaijan need to resolve the issue of safety of flights, said the U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan, Matthew Bryza.
"I uphold the position the U.S. leadership, which believes that the sides should come together and discuss these issues before the airport is opened in Khankendi, the ambassador told reporters on Tuesday. - We think that the details can be worked out."
The Armenian side is planning to open an airport in Khankendi in May.
Armenia has no right to operate the airport in Khankendi, built in the Azerbaijani occupied territories. This contradicts all international conventions and will not be allowed by any international organizations, including an influential organization such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), AZAL spokesman Maharram Safarli said on Monday.
It is necessary to obtain relevant documents and approval from the ICAO to operate the airport.
Azerbaijan has already informed the organization about inadmissibility of carrying out flights from this airport.
