Baku. Elnur Mammadli –APA. Azerbaijani opposition parties made statements on the tripartite meeting of Azerbaijani, Armenian and Russian presidents in Moscow and Declaration issued by them. Musavat Party’s Divan discussed on Monday the Russian latest steps toward the Nagorno Karabakh issue and issued statement which said that joint declaration and its points about the Madrid proposals caused unacceptable condition for Azerbaijan about the future status of Nagorno Karabakh. “Solving the Nagorno Karabakh problem on the basis of Madrid proposals put the issues of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and sovereignty under the serious question”.
Press service of All Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (BAXCP) told APA that it is impossible to reach fair solution of the problem via Russia’s mediation. BAXCP leadership stated that Azerbaijani lands were occupied by Armenia with the support of Russia. “Any referendum in the concrete territory about determination of Nagorno Karabakh status is violation of Azerbaijan’s Constitution and losing of Nagorno Karabakh. It is impossible to expect benefit from Russia”. BAXCP considers that concrete time should be given to Armenia to withdraw its forces from the occupied lands for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and to the international organizations to pressure upon the occupants.

Azerbaijan Democratic Party (ADP) valued the Moscow talks and Russia’s attempt to take the initiative unilaterally as a revenge for the Minsk Group members’ intentions to dismiss Moscow for its action against Georgia. ADP argued that 2007 Madrid principles are contrary to the international law and solution of the problem on the basis of these principles has no prospects and doesn’t guarantee the long-term peace in the region.
Karabakh Liberation Organization (KLO) also negatively reacted to the Moscow Declaration. KLO said in the statement on Monday that Russian leadership tried to force Azerbaijan to make concessions. “Organizing meeting and signing declaration in Moscow don’t meet Azerbaijan’s interests for a number of its points. Russia does not make secret that it takes the initiative and tries to develop this initiative monopolizing the Nagorno Karabakh conflict”. KLO stated that Azerbaijan should leave this process, which meets the Armenian and Russian interests and creates serious threats for Karabakh’s fate. “Azerbaijan can sign any joint document only after the withdrawal of Armenian forces from all occupied lands”.
