The deputy minister raised the issues negotiated there”, said Novruz Mammadov, Chief of International Relations Department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan, APA reports.

Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Araz Azimov said Armenia demanded time for withdrawal from Lachin and Kelbajar.

Mammadov said these proposals were elaborated by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. “From this point of view, indeed Armenia demanded time not only for withdrawal from these two regions, but for other issues raised by Araz Azimov. Armenia demanded two weeks, several months passed, but there is no reaction yet”.

The department chief said the co-chairs were working on that and keeping in touch with the sides. “May be we will be informed about the positions of the sides soon. The raised issue is the most correct way for solution to the conflict. There is no other solution. Armenia must understand it very well. This is an opportunity for the international community and for the leaders of the co-chair countries. It needs to pressure on Armenia and to try to solve the problem”.

Answering the question “can the war be unavoidable by the end of the year”, Mammadov said: “It is difficult to forecast the war, but we are always ready to liberate our lands by all means”.

Mammadov said the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs were working in Vienna on the issues raised by Araz Azimov. “They have to force Armenia to accept the project elaborated by them”.
