Ilham Aliyev: “We will not allow Armenia to conduct endless negotiations”

Answering the question whether borders between the two countries will be opened or not if Armenia accepts updated Madrid proposals, President Aliyev said Azerbaijan had been searching peaceful way during 16 years of fruitless negotiations since ceasefire was reached in 1994. He said Azerbaijan accepted the updated Madrid proposals with little exclusions and was expecting Armenia to accept it.

Despite 6 months have passed since the proposals was put forward, Armenia has not given positive response, said Azerbaijani President and added that Armenia intended to conduct endless negotiations in this manner. The head of state said Azerbaijan wouldn’t allow it. “The negotiations must have certain frames and time limit. The Minks Group was established in 1992. The negotiations are going on for almost 20 years. Armenia always broke off the negotiations when the solution was approached. Unfortunately the same position is observed today. Armenia will respond positively to the proposals of the OSCE Minsk Group and we will approach the solution or the process will be broken and a new stage will be started between Armenia and Azerbaijan. If Armenia positively responds the proposals and starts to withdraw its invasion troops from the Azerbaijani lands, Azerbaijan will open borders and peace and security measures will be carried out in the region”.
