Baku, Fineko/abc.az. A number of persons, wishing to handle in the OSCE
Minsk Group for settlement of Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict, have grown dramatically.
According to Presidential Administration socio-political department
head Ali Hasanov, Azerbaijan is not authorized to review activity or
determine the composition of the Minsk Group..
"This is the OSCE institution. The organization itself determines the
number of states in its structure. If there is any dissatisfaction on
this issue at the OSCE next summit, Azerbaijan, of course, can voice
its opinion. There is increasing concern over the lack of significant
results of the Institute of co-chairmen in recent years not only in
Europe but all over the world.
Presently, the question is the opportunity of participation of the
European Union (EU) there in some kind of form, that is, so that
France will represent in this structure not itself but and whole EU.
There are other proposals. The agenda also includes the issue of
participation of Turkey as an interesting country of this region
in the full sense of this word. There are other offers – as many
countries as proposals.
But evaluation of proposals is prerogative of OSCE," Hasanov said.
Azerbaijan, for his part, is dissatisfied with ineffectiveness of
the Minsk Group.
