"Despite the warnings of Azerbaijan, Armenian side did not comply with the signed documents," Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said at a joint press conference with Catherine Colonna, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs of France, APA reports.

"Numerous proposals from the Azerbaijani side are being made by President Ilham Aliyev. One of them is the provision of transparent regime on the Lachin road, but Armenian side refused the offer of parallel control. In such a case, in order to ensure transparent control over the Lachin road, on April 23, the Azerbaijani side took appropriate steps to perform control release function. According to the statement, Lachin road can be used in 3 directions: for citizens, goods and vehicles," minister said.
