Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry called on Yerevan "not to waste time on the reanimation" of the OSCE MG.
Baku announced that statements of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the normalization of Armenian-Azerbaijani relations "cast doubt on Yerevan's ambitions to establish lasting peace in the region."
At the same time the ministry noted that "the statement of the Prime Minister (Nikol Pashinyan) that "opening of communications is beneficial for Armenia", draws attention as a new approach of the Armenian leadership. It seems that Armenia needs time to accept the truth. We hope it will not take long for Armenia to realize the effectiveness of the Zangezur corridor, which has already become a reality."
The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry also accused the Armenian side of disrupting meetings at various levels.
The Prime Minister of Armenia, without referring to a specific case, said that "the Azerbaijani side boycotted a meeting at least once." "If we start listing the meetings proposed by international mediators in the post-conflict period, which Armenia violated under various pretexts or disrupted them through various provocations 1-2 hours before they started, the list will be very long," the statement says.
Baku considers that "if Yerevan really wants peace, it should show political will and take concrete steps on the way to peace instead of wasting time on resuscitation of the format, the effectiveness of which has always been low and whose members now openly admit its impossibility (of the OSCE Minsk Group)."
