Last statements from Armenian Foreign Minister V. Oskanyan are constructive and show the commitment to the peaceful conversation process, Trend reports quoting Tair Tagizadeh, head of information and press, Azeri Foreign Ministry.
On April Oskanyan reportedly said В"f Azerbaijan recognizes Nagorno-Karabakhs peoples right for independent identification of their future status, Armenia is ready to make serious conversations on resolution of war consequencesВ". And two days back he said the following: В"In case Azerbaijan agrees that Nagorno-Karabakhs people have the right for self-determination that may be embodied not today, but in the future, Armenian side is ready to discuss the most important war issues today grounds, refugees and so onВ".
В"This statement witnesses Armenians intention to actively participate in peace conversations on resolution of Armenian-Azeri conflict, - said Tagizadeh, - This statement is de facto the evidence of commitment to stage-by-stage resolution. It is known that stage-by-stage process stipulates Armenian forces withdrawal from grounds surrounding Nagorno Karabakh. It also includes a mass of accompanying elements like mine clearing, communications recovery, return of forced migrants and ensuring their safety. And second issue is definition of Nagorno Karabakhs statusВ".
As to self-determination, Tagizadeh said, it is quite possible even within the state. В"This is the very highest autonomy status we are talking ofВ", - he concluded.
Tagizadeh.also shared an opinion on Oskanyans statement regarding Armenias joining Trans-Caspian gas pipeline and supposed conversations with the USA. В"Armenia may not talk to the USA alone for a number of reasons. One of them is that no regional project is executed without Azerbaijan either as an exporter or a transit country. We may consider cooperation with Armenia possible only upon completion of resolution and elimination of its consequencesВ", - Azeri official underlined.
