/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Mais Gulaliyev, the chairman of Greens Party of
Azerbaijan said his country should open borders and establish economic
and diplomatic relations with Armenia. He said the party has carried
out geopolitical researches over the region and worked out proposals
on the resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

Gulaliyev said the package of proposals basically stipulates
economical, public-political ways to solution to the Nagorno Karabakh
conflict. The document analyzes the Azerbaijani economy and oil
revenues of the country. It also maintains the analysis of positions
and interests of international financial institutes, foreign countries,
and international organizations on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

The chairman of Greens Party ruled out armed solution to the
conflict. It is unreal and can benefit only the Azerbaijani opposition
desiring replacement in power.

"The opposition understands it cannot come to power through elections
in the near future. Forces aspired to power spare no effort to make
the government use armed interference and achieve replacement this way.

In case war breaks out, the international organizations will press
for resignation of the state leadership. Even NATO forces will strike
blows on Azerbaijan without delay," the party leader said.

"The Karabakh problem should be resolved only in a peaceable way, which
passes through the fulfillment of all commitments by Azerbaijan. We
described the government’s commitments to the Azerbaijani people,
opposition, non-governmental organizations and international
organizations in the package of proposals. After fulfillment of
all obligations and consolidation of economy Azerbaijan should take
Armenia out of the economic blockade and make this country economically
dependent," he said, Trend news agency reports.
