The Head of the Press and Information Policy Department of the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan, Tahir Tagizade, informed Trend that the initiative on the frozen conflicts made in the UNO is the joint initiative of the GUAM (Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova) countries, which want to jointly address the challenges and threats facing them. He commented on the recent statement of the OSCE Minsk Group calling on the conflict sides to avoid the actions, including U.N. General Assembly.
According to Tagizade, the initiative is a real reaction to the real challenges facing the states. Azerbaijan does not intend to change the format of the negotiations. But it needs to note that the UNO is not a new forum to discuss Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. It is enough to remember 4 Resolutions of the U.N. Security Council. Therefore, within the broad international discussions over the principles of the international law and level of the priority of these principles in connection with each other, we consider more significant the constructive efforts to address concrete aspects of the situation in the region, including Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, he said.
We consider it necessary to continue active work with the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group to explain to them what constructive contributions are made by the discussions over this question in the UNO to the negotiation process and its development, Tagizade said.
