APAâ€™s European bureau reports that member of Azerbaijani delegation Rafael Huseynov asked the UK minister what he thinks to contribute to the liberation of Azerbaijanâ€™s territories from Armeniaâ€™s occupation and the return of one million Azerbaijani refugees and displaced persons to their homeland. In his answer David Lidington reminded that the OSCE Minsk group is engaged in the settlement of this problem. â€œOf course, the Council of Europe is also making efforts on this issue. While joining the Council of Europe both Azerbaijan and Armenia undertook commitments to achieve peaceful settlement of the conflict. We are constantly following the negotiations between Azerbaijani and Armenian presidents. Our main desire is to achieve concrete results in peace talks instead of rhetoric, because continuation of the conflict leads to human losses and we are against this. As the United Kingdom, I want to state that we are interested in resolving the conflict peacefully, and taking the necessary steps in this directionâ€.
