BAKU, April 12. /TASS/. Azerbaijan supports the proposal to establish a contact group on Nagorno-Karabakh within the framework of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the country’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said on Tuesday speaking at a meeting of the Council of foreign ministers of the OIC member-countries in Istanbul, the press service of Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry reported.
"I would like to endorse the decision of this conference on setting up the contact group," Mammadyarov said.
He noted that "Armenia continued to violate the ceasefire regime and, drawing attention away from the main issues necessary for the peace process, demonstrated its main intentions." He called on the international community to demand that Armenia "stop the illegal occupation of Azerbaijan’s territory, withdraw its troops from all occupied lands and demonstrate constructiveness in resolving the conflict in accordance with the requirements of the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council and the norms and principles of international law."
