Armenia and Karabakh are really ready to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan said during a joint discussion with the President of Azerbaijan at the Munich Security Conference.
According to him, they are committed to the process of peace talks, and they should be held in the format of the OSCE Minsk Group.
We are ready to make real efforts to reach a solution to the conflict, he said adding that there is a need for a real breakthrough in the negotiation process.
According to Pashinyan, after he became PM, he proposed “micro-revolution” in the process of resolving the conflict.
“I announced the solution to the Karabakh conflict should be acceptable to the people of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Karabakh. I also called on social media users not to offer or threaten each other, but to try to better understand each other. I also tried to address Azerbaijani people directly. I do not mind if president Aliyev speaks to the Armenian people. However, Azerbaijani president is refusing to speak to the people of Karabakh. How is it possible to solve the Karabakh conflict without addressing the people of Karabakh? he said.
In response to Aliyev’s remark that relations should normalize between Azerbaijan and Armenia, Pashinyan noted that Azerbaijan had signed two agreements with Karabakh in the past.
As for the Karabakh defense army, PM noted that his son went to serve in Karabakh voluntarily to protect his compatriots.
