Countries yielding to Azerbaijan’s provocations hamper Karabakh process

If one of the sides speaks of one principle and completely ignores the other, it seriously hampers talks for the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement, Armenia’s Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian said when commenting on priority of the principle of territorial integrity Azerbaijan constantly mentions about.

“The countries, which yield to Azerbaijan’s provocations, undermine the peace process. No one should doubt that the conflict can be resolved only through recognition of the NKR people’s right to self-determination,” he said. “Some 80 states were recognized in 1950-ies. Majority of current 192 UN member states became independent through their right to self-determination.”

“It’s obvious that oil and gas income create an illusion of power. This illusion was the main cause of Karabakh war, the consequences of which are well known to everybody,” the Minister said
