Baku. Ramiz Mikayiloghlu – APA. Vice-Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament, Head of the Azerbaijani Delegation to the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly Bahar Muradova has commented on the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group in 2013, APA reports.

Bahar Muradova told journalists that the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group should be assessed basing on the results of the steps taken towards the resolution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

She said that Azerbaijan has always been concerned over and criticized the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group: “But in general, this year, the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group paid a number of visits to the region, held meetings, conducted monitoring in the occupied territories and presented reports on the observance of ceasefire regime. Unfortunately, the concrete results of this activity were not reflected in the negotiation process. We have not seen any step that can be regarded as a progress.”

Vice-speaker regarded as positive the continuation of the negotiations between the presidents.

"But our discontent will be continued until Armenian troops leave our territories," she said.

Bahar Muradova said views were always expressed on changing the format of OSCE Minsk Group.

"This is natural. As long as there are no results, negotiations are protracted, the conflict deepens, people's hopes decrease. Therefore, such views are expressed. But OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries are the leading figures of the world policy and have serious levers of influence on Armenia. One should wait for the co-chairing countries to enhance their activity within the current format and demonstrate their desires to achieve real results. Proposals to replace these countries, include other countries in the Minsk Group co-chairmanship will return the process to zero," she said.
