Baku, Yerevan want peace process to continue

Baku. (Interfax-Azerbaijan) – Armenia and Azerbaijan are interested
in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Azerbaijani Foreign
Ministry said on Monday. The foreign ministers of the two nations met
in Prague on April 16.

“This meeting, which was organized by the co-chairmen of the OSCE
Minsk Group, helped the sides exchange opinions on possible ways of
resolving the situation. Armenia and Azerbaijan reiterated their
mutual interest in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and agreed
to continue this useful dialogue,” the press service for the
Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry reported, citing a joint statement
issued by the two foreign ministers.

“The foreign ministers highly appreciate the support from the
government of the Czech Republic and the OSCE,” says the statement.

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mamedyarov told Interfax before
the Prague meeting that it would not address the new proposals made
by the OSCE Minsk Group.

Mamedyarov stressed that Azerbaijan’s main goal is to resolve the
conflict as soon as possible. He added that Azerbaijan does not see
the option of Nagorno-Karabakh joining Armenia as acceptable.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
