“The Minsk Group has been completely inactive for the last 2 years as an outdated structure. References to this structure only feed on false expectations and illusions, maintain the revanchist approach still prevailing in Armenia and increase tensions. Bilateral discussions regarding the normalization between Azerbaijan and Armenia are conducted outside the OSCE,” said Azerbaijan’s permanent representative in the organization Rovshan Sadigbeyli at the special meeting of OSCE’s permanent council to the response to Armenian FM Ararat Mirzoyan’s speech, APA reports.

According to him, Armenia should admit this reality and should act accordingly: “If this country is really interested in peace and stability in the region, we call on Armenia to give up all activities and incendiary rhetoric targeting Azerbaijan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, to stop attempts to distort normalization process and fully implement its commitments over trilateral statements.

Armenia should respond to Azerbaijan's constructive proposal and use the historic opportunity to normalize its relations with Azerbaijan and other neighboring states based on respect for their sovereignty and territorial integrity and ensure that necessary steps are taken in this direction. There is no alternative for long-term peace and stability in the region."

Azerbaijan is fully committed to the goals of creating a peaceful, secure, stable, and prosperous region and will continue its efforts in this regard.
