The artificial delay in the negotiation process on normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations is fraught with serious risks, said Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov.
"Today in the talks [with the Russian Foreign Minister] we discussed the post-conflict settlement of the South Caucasus. Azerbaijan has the position that the conflict [with Armenia] is a thing of the past, and cooperation is necessary for lasting peace.
“Azerbaijan's position is conditioned by the need for full and unwavering implementation of trilateral agreements by all parties. The artificial delay in the negotiation process is fraught with serious risks," Bayramov told a news briefing after talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Friday.
