Azeri FM says Armenians to be re-settled if peace accord signed

Baku Today, Azerbaijan

Armenians in Nagorno Karabakh region will be re-settled if Azerbaijan
and Armenia sign a peace accord, Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov
said.

Mammadyarov said that relevant provisions were reflected in the report
prepared by the OSCE fact-finding mission that visited Nagorno Karabakh
in February to look into the illegal settlement of Armenians in the
occupied Azerbaijani regions.

The Minister noted that the report indicated that Armenians have been
illegally settled in the occupied areas that Azerbaijani residents
were ousted from and should therefore be resettled. Azerbaijan’s
position on the issue is supported by the mediating OSCE Minsk Group
co-chairs and the international community, he added.
