President Ilham Aliyev: Negotiations are underway between Armenia and Azerbaijan, there are only two sides to conflict
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 29
Azerbaijan has always shown constructiveness on the negotiation track, President Ilham Aliyev said responding to questions from the hosts of "60 minutes" of the Rossiya-1 TV channel program dedicated to the recent events on the Azerbaijani-Armenian contact line, Trend reports.
“And the co-chairs of the Minsk Group, who are responsible for the mediation mission, can confirm this. In particular, over the past two years, we have repeatedly stated, both myself and other officials, that we are committed to the principles of settlement that have been developed over the years and which the Minsk Group and its co-chairs consider the basis for the negotiating process,” the head of state said.
“Moreover, we have stated repeatedly in the past two years and before that, we are committed to the format of the negotiations. Negotiations are underway between Armenia and Azerbaijan. There are only two sides to the conflict. Sometimes, when talking about the conflict, there is a mention of all sides. This is an incorrect definition. Not all sides. There are only two sides – Armenia and Azerbaijan. But what has been happening in recent years, after the Soros coup which was carried out by the current government in Armenia? The Armenian prime minister publicly declares that Karabakh is Armenia, full stop. In this case, what kind of negotiations can we talk about? “ the head of state said.
