Azerbaijan passed its position to US co-chairman of OSCE Mink Group Mathew Bryza regarding the settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said Araz Azimov, Presidents special representative o Nagorno-Karabakh and deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan, Trend reports with reference to ATV channel.
Azimov said following the replacement of US co-chair Russian and French co-chairs may get replaced as well. В"From this point of view Bryzas visit to the region opens some prospectsВ", Azeri official said.
Commenting Mr Bryzas statement saying status of Nagorno-Karabakh shall be determined by its people, including those left homes in 1988, Azimov said people living in there shall be treated as population, not nation. В"We think Azeri and Armenian community alike shall be accounted for in this processВ", said Azimov. The question of Nagorno-Karabakh status, he added, shall be considered just in a view of returning occupied grounds to Azerbaijan.
