Ankara, Turkey, May 17
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
The Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be resolved within Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, Turkish Foreign Ministry told Trend May 17.
"Turkey urges the OSCE Minsk Group (MG) to be more active on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict's settlement," said the ministry. "Turkey's position remains unchanged - the conflict must be resolved peacefully."
The first meeting of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan since the beginning of deterioration of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh was held in Vienna recently. The OSCE MG co-chairs on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict James Warlick, Igor Popov and Pierre Andrieu participated in the meeting.
Commenting on the statement of the Armenian MP Hrant Bagratyan that Armenia has nuclear weapons, Turkey's Foreign Ministry said that such statements are not even in the interest of Armenia.
The use of chemical or nuclear weapons is a crime against humanity, said the ministry.
"We are confident that Armenia does not have the possibility to develop nuclear weapons," added the ministry.
