BAKU, January 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Azerbaijan hopes that progress will be achieved in the talks on the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement, President Ilkham Aliyev said at a government session devoted to the social and economic development.
There has been no progress within the year, Aliyev said.
At the same time, the president said, “At the end of 2013 the parties’ efforts were more active on this track.”
“International mediators are trying to achieve progress in the Karabakh settlement. I should say their activities yielded no results. It’s real. We heard positive statements from the mediators and the heads of state. I want to note that the joint statements by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen rivet attention to inadmissibility of status quo,” the Azerbaijani president said.
Baku seeks to settle the conflict by peaceful means. “Azerbaijan takes a constructive position. I hope that the mediators will play more active role in the negotiations,” Aliyev added.
He specified the principles, which were the basis for signing a peace agreement between the warring parties. Armenia should comply with the four resolutions of the U.N. Security Council and free the occupied territories, Aliyev said, adding “The problem should be and will be solved within Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity.
