Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan :The OSCE Minsk group is not interested in the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno Karabakh

The OSCE Minsk group is not interested in the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno Karabakh.

The statement came from Iranian ambassador to Azerbaijan Mahammadbagir Bahrami.

“One of the main goals of trilateral development is the settlement of problems existing in the country by the regional states without interference of the third powers”, he said.

The ambassador stressed ineffectiveness of the attempts of the third countries to settle the Karabakh conflict within the past 20 years.

“I would say even more-they are not only unable to settle this. The OSCE Minsk Group is even not interested in the resolution of this conflict. The aim of these states rather to create new problems than to settle existing ones”, Bahrami said.
