At the moment, a meeting by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs format on a specific date and place is not planned yet. At the moment, the Minsk Group co-chairs are scheduled to visit the region. As you probably know, this issue has been discussed for a long time, but it is constantly postponed. Armenia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ararat Mirzoyan said that during the Parliament-Government question-and-answer.
Referring to Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's statement last week that the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs should not deal with the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Mirzoyan said.
“It is not the first time that the top leadership of Azerbaijan has made, to put it mildly, non-constructive statements and position, which, of course, prevents the discussion of all existing issues in a more constructive atmosphere, and hence the search for acceptable for everyone, good, and normal solutions and their fixing.
However, I must say that not always the public statements fully or partially coincide with the approaches discussed in closed rooms. And I must say that the position of Azerbaijan is one thing, the reality is another thing, the position of the international community is another thing.
The reality is that despite the position of Azerbaijan for a year or a little more that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is resolved, and that neither the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict nor the Nagorno-Karabakh exists, during this year we have seen that the world does not agree with it, and the reality is not like that. You can find evidence of the positions voiced by many countries at the annual OSCE Ministerial Conference in Stockholm last year that there is a Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and it should be resolved in the format of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs. This is the only format that has an internationally recognized mandate, that is to find a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict,” said Armenia’s Foreign Minister.
