Novruz Mammedov: We want Nagorno-Karabakh negotiations to yield exact results
OSCE Minsk group co-chairmens consultations can be regarded as a positive event, but this is not enough for us. We want the negotiations process to yield the exact results, head of the Azerbaijan President Executive apparatus department of foreign affairs, Novruz Mammedov told Trend.
He did not support the statement that the negotiating process is in the state of stagnation due to absence of information. The process has been never publicized, as there was no need in it. Information will be spread only in case if some agreement will be reached or some steps forward achieved, Mammedov said, adding that negotiations are always held behind the closed doors.
Commenting the statement made by the Armenian Foreign Minister, regarding the fact that Armenia has already made a number of concessions and now it is Azerbaijans turn, the Minister said that the statement is false. He said that Armenian leaders are playing with words at the meetings
They know from the one hand that unsolved conflict may lead to unexpected consequences. Armenian leadership very worried because of the speech of the Azerbaijani President at the second meeting of world Azerbaijanis. Increase of the mint of Azerbaijan and growth of the army worried them too. They claim in such conditions that they make concessions and allegedly take the positive side, but the conflict is no closer to the resolution and that is their fault, Mammedov said, adding that following this policy Armenian leadership is expecting to extend its time in power.
He emphasized that the Armenian leadership chose the wrong position and compromises on part of Azerbaijan are in the desire to solve the conflict peacefully, return the occupied lands via negotiations and peacefully define the status of Nagorno-Karabakh.
