Elmar Mammadyarov: Official Baku is not supporter of NATO military bases stationing in Azerbaijan
The official Baku is not the supporter of foreign military bases stationing in Azerbaijan, the AzerbaijanвЂ™s Foreign Minister (FM) Elmar Mammadyarov came out with such a statement, Trend reports.
The FM head reminded that in line with the legislation of Azerbaijan stationing of any foreign bases within the country is banned. Mammadyarov noted, вЂњdeployment of bases is rather a complicated processвЂќ. The parliaments of each country may have their own standpoints in regard to military basesвЂќ, Mammadyarov stressed.
Voicing his position in regard to peace-keeping forces placement in the region, the AzerbaijanвЂ™s FM head noted, the issue is вЂњfirst of all stipulated by the mandate of the peace-keeping forcesвЂќ. В"And we have not set to its elaborating. The sides must understand, these forces will not represent any of the OSCE Minsk group countries and adjoining statesвЂќ, Mammadyarov said, noting, there is common understanding both in Azerbaijan and Armenia and by the OSCE Minsk group co-chairs.
В"In case peace-keeping operations will be conducted in the South Caucasus, it will be only within the OSCE frameworksвЂќ, Mammadyarov summarized.
