“The Armenian minister seems to palter again, or he does not take seriously the decisions passed by an important organization like the UN Security Council,” spokesman for Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Elman Abdullayev said while commenting on the statement issued by Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, APA reports.
He said the UN Security Council passed four resolutions on Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
“These resolutions are efficient and demand unconditional withdrawal of the Armenian Armed Forces from the occupied Azerbaijani territories.
Azerbaijan supported the initiatives of some European organizations concerning the meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian communities of Nagorno Karabakh, but unfortunately, these initiatives were prevented by Yerevan. This demonstrates their real intention regarding the maintenance of the status quo. The positions of Azerbaijan and the international community coincide regarding the inadmissibility of the status quo, this is an undeniable fact. The status quo must be changed and the process must start by withdrawal of the Armenian troops from the occupied Azerbaijani territories,” he said.
According to Armenian media, yesterday at the joint briefing with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said Azerbaijan is interested in maintenance of the status quo and therefore rejected the recent four proposals of the OSCE Minsk Group.
“Moreover, the resolutions of the UN Security Council were adopted in 1993, that’s why, the co-chairs never refer to these resolutions in their statements,” he said.
