In addition, Tagizade stressed that Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that relations will be established only after other components of the first stage of the regulations of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict are realized. One of these components is a confidence-building measure, he stated.
