Reintegration of Nagorno-Karabak - only way of regulation of Azerbaijani-Armenian conflict, Araz Azimov
The only possible version of the regulation of the Azerbaijani-Armenian conflict is reintegration of Nagorno-Karabakh into the rest part of Azerbaijan, Araz Azimov, the deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, said at a briefing on the results of the visit of OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen to Baku on Thursday, Trend reports.
He noted that the Azerbaijans position on the regulation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was not subjected to any changes and Ilham Aliyev, the Azerbaijani President, would state it anew at the meeting with his Armenian counterpart Robert Kocharian.
According to Azimov, the interest of the world community in the regulation of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem grows that it is an impulse to play its part in solution of the problem.
The same time he said that difference between Azerbaijani and Armenian positions assumed evidence, and the sides must avoid of extremal approaches. According to Azimov, Nagorno-Karabakh is an integral part of Azerbaijan and the territorial integrity of the country is not a subject of discussions for Baku. Insisting on separation of these territories from Azerbaijan is the position, which will radically change the current situation and deliver a blow to the regional security, he stressed.
As to the dislocation of the peacemaking forces in the region, Azimov noted that the issue had not been discussed yet and it required some conditions, particularly, liberation of the Azerbaijans occupied territories, measures on mine clearing, repatriation of refugees and internally displaced persons, restoration of communication lines.
In principle, dislocation of the forces can take 90 days or 2 months, but can be delayed as well. All these issues will be reflected in the final agreement, Azimov underlined.
