Mane Gevorgyan, Spokesperson of the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, posted the following on her Facebook page:
“Armenia has been and is ready for a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.
In his speech today, the Prime Minister of Armenia emphasized that Armenia has always been and is currently ready for a compromised solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh issue. The Prime Minister also expressed willingness to meet with the President of Azerbaijan in Moscow. Armenia has been and is ready for a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue and highly appreciates the mediation efforts of the co-chairing countries of the OSCE Minsk Group, particularly the Russian Federation.
Azerbaijan views military force as the key factor for a solution to the issue and continues to violate the ceasefire agreements.
Based on this, the Armenian people need to consolidate their defensive potential to have the opportunity to stand up for their statements on the diplomatic front.
Once again, we emphasized that, in this stage, there is no diplomatic solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh issue due to Azerbaijan’s destructive actions.
Nikol Pashinyan has emphasized several times and recently emphasized that the Armenian side is ready for the negotiation process hinged on mutual concessions, but practice has shown that this logic is unacceptable for Azerbaijan.
Let me remind the well-known statement of the Prime Minister according to which the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be acceptable for the people of Armenia, for the people of Artsakh and for the people of Azerbaijan. Aliyev has not made any similar statement, including a statement on mutual concessions.”
