“Returning of refugees and IDPs to their lands can be considered as basic principle in the settlement of the conflict. But this needs corresponding agreement and concretization of details on the returning of IDPs”.
Co chair of OSCE Minsk group Yuri Merzlyakov said Armenia stresses t5he problem of refugees while Azerbaijan underlines IDPs problems. “But we can not say that this returning will take place soon. There are problems of mined territories, ruined infrastructure and house problems”. Co chair Bernar Fassier said the issue on returning of refugees are the serious problem. “This process can have positive and negative results. I would like to remind unsuccessful results of returning in Abkhazia and successful results that of in Bosnia-Hertzogovina. Bernar Fassier reminded that he sounded the proposal on Nagorno Karabakh’s people participation in the negotiations earlier. “ I offered that Nagorno Karbakh’s people to participate in the negotiations. It happened before and no problems emerged. The change of format was not the will of the co chairs. Nagorno Karabakh people participated in the negotiations until today. Now we offer participation of population lived before the conflict in Nagorno Karabakh in the negotiations process. The earlier it happens the more we will profit from it”.
Yuri Merzlyakov said Nagorno Karabakh is the side in the conflict. “ Nagorno Karabakh is the conflict side and signed the ceasefire agreement. It is not new issue”.
The co chairs touched upon the concerns of people of two sides on the activity of OSCE. “Removal of OSCE from the settlement of the negotiations should on the will of the twp sides. We are ready to resign from this post just now. It is not the blame of the OSCE that the conflicts not settled within 15 years. It is the result of disagreement of the sides. It is very in fashion to blame OSCE Minsk Group”. /APA/
