Armenian MFA: Azerbaijani Foreign Minister spreads misinformation
STEPANAKERT, JUNE 25, ARTSAKHPRESS: According to her, such an approach is destructive and devalues the seriousness of the peace process.
“As we noted before the Washington meeting, issues over smoothing the situation created recently amid the actions of the Azerbaijani side were discussed during the meeting. The Co-Chairs called for immediate steps to restore a peace-promoting atmosphere and ensure respect for the truce, and made clear proposals on humanitarian issues and risk reduction,” she said. “The misinformation spread by the Azerbaijani side outside this framework leads to the conclusion that Azerbaijan does not intend to fulfill these calls and proposals of the co-chairs. Moreover, the claim that negotiations can successfully develop in conditions of a systematic violation of the ceasefire regime causes serious damage to efforts towards settlement and disrupts the peace process.”
