BAKU, Azerbaijan, April 22. The Minsk Group was established not to resolve the problem, but to perpetuate the fact of occupation, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said while delivering a speech at the 5th Congress of World Azerbaijanis in Shusha on April 22, Trend reports.
”Unfortunately, high-ranking officials in Armenia are still talking about the Minsk Group. I think this is pointless and it makes no sense. The Minsk Group was virtually paralyzed in 2019. The group, which was mandated to address the issue in 1992, has failed to achieve any results. Looking at the actions of this group and proposals in retrospect, we can see again that this group was not established to resolve the problem. We were just a little naive at the time. This group was established not to resolve the problem, but to perpetuate the fact of occupation. Armenian lobby groups are quite influential in the Minsk Group co-chair countries. This is why this group did not achieve any results for 28 years,” said the head of state.
