BAKU: Turkey-Armenia Negotiations Should Be Coordinated With Azerbai

Dec 23 2009

Mikheil Saakashvili "I think the countries should contact, peoples
should communicate."

"Well, first of I all, I have heard very optimistic "we are on the
verge of progress" statements from the European diplomats for all these
years and it has always seemed to me that this is just an attempt
to set up the desired for the reality", Georgian President Mikheil
Saakashvili said answering the question from Echo Moskvy correspondent.

The problem is complicated and Russia is a main key to this issue.

There is only one receipt for the settlement of all problems. These are
direct negotiations of these countries and respect to international
law, including the right of people to return to their homelands and
to state sovereignty.

Therefore, this situation remains changeless and there is always
a potential for worsening. To have the improvement, I think the
countries should contact, peoples should communicate, therefore, the
negotiations ongoing between Turkey and Armenia should, certainly,
be coordinated with Azerbaijan. But anyway, talks are always good,
any progress is always positive. When there is some progress, people
start to trade, communicate and get used to each other. These problems
are all protracted with mine fields and barblocks. When there is no
barblock, people will be able to settle their problems sometimes even
without the government.

Certainly, we are so far stuck in this situation. I do not want to
call this situation the status quo. Our situation showed that there
is no status quo at all. There is always a situation when one should
always be on alert.

“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
