Baku. Victoria Dementeva – APA. “Any attempt for illegal flight is nothing but a provocation that will undermine the negotiations on the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh,” spokesman for Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Elman Abdullayev told APA while commenting on the statements of Armenian president and foreign minister on the opening of Khojaly airport.

“Illegal opening of the airport and operation of illegal flights over the occupied territories of Azerbaijan are attempts to strengthen the fact of occupation and status-quo. It may have a negative impact on the process of negotiations and Minsk Group format and lead to the danger in the region,” he said.

Abdullayev noted that Azerbaijan has repeatedly announced concrete position on this issue: “In 1993, Azerbaijan appealed to ICAO for closing the airspace over the occupied territories. All the states that joined the Chicago Convention must respect Azerbaijan’s decision. According to relevant article of the Convention, Azerbaijan has a sovereign right to use this airspace.”
