Samad Seyidov mentioned that Nagorno Karabakh Armenians drove out Azerbaijanis living there.
“If we speak about Nagorno Karabakh people, please take into account 60,000 Azerbaijanis living there. The second thing is that Nagorno Karabakh representatives participated in the talks several years ago and our colleagues know it. Let’s see who participates in these negotiations as a leading force? Armenian military units have been placed in Nagorno Karabakh, Armenian population of Nagorno Karabakh passes military service in Armenia, budget of Nagorno Karabakh is the main part of Armenian budget, Armenia announced Nagorno Karabakh its main part due to Constitution Act adopted in 1989. This law is in force by now. Then it is clear whom we have to carry out negotiations,” he said.
Samad Seyidov stated Azerbaijan’s position regarding this issue.
“We are ready to carry out debates with people in Nagorno Karabakh and I wonder why Nagorno Karabakh Armenians do not invite Nagorno Karabakh Azerbaijanis to Karabakh? It is surprising why Armenians fire at Nagorno Karabakh Azerbaijanis when they want to return to their native lands? How can we carry out negotiations when Armenian community of Nagorno Karabakh deviates from considering themselves Azerbaijani citizen? We are ready to negotiations and we can guarantee Nagorno Karabakh. But Nagorno Karabakh side does not accept our terms. There is only one way-conflict should be solved in the framework of international law. You know that territorial integrity of states and nations’ defining their fortune does not contradict each other. We are ready to give all necessary rights to Nagorno Karabakh today. Armenia allocates $25 million to form Nagorno Karabakh’s budget. But we are ready to allocate $ 100 million and more to Nagorno Karabakh today,” he said. /APA/
