MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) - The efforts should be intensified much to attain a breakthrough in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, visiting Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov said after the negotiations with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov here on Tuesday.
“Today the problem of Nagorno Karabakh is one of the biggest problems that Azerbaijan faces,” Mamedyarov said. “From the point of view of Russia’s role in the region and its role as a co-chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group, we expect that the stagnation, which the negotiating process faces now, will be overcome.”
In the words of the minister, the stalling is linked with the elections in Armenia and Azerbaijan. “The elections are already over in Armenia, the elections should be completed in Azerbaijan by the end of the year,” the Azerbaijani foreign minister recalled. “As long as they are over, we should double, even triple our efforts to attain a breakthrough, progress in the settlement of this very complicated, but resolvable conflict,” Mamedyarov noted.
“The current status quo is unacceptable,” he added.
“If there is some political will, and it should exist, we can reach not only very serious agreements, but also a normal good neighbourliness,” the minister noted. “Certainly, we want it very much that our relations with Armenia will be restored,” he underlined.
