Official Baku let OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs know that its position
on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains unchanged. It means occupied
territories must be returned and resolution of the conflict must be
based on the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, spokesman to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs Khazar Ibrahim told a briefing on Monday.
Ministry representative said Azerbaijani side expects that mediators
would urge Armenia to take more constructive stand on the conflict.
As to involvement of both Nagorno-Karabakh communities into the talks,
Ibrahim stressed it would be possible only after Armenian armed forces
leave Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijani people return to their homes.
