The position has not changed and it will not change,” Russian ambassador to Azerbaijan Vasili Istratov told APA. He said that OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs passed a unanimous decision at the meeting of the UN General Assembly and protested to the resolution presented by Azerbaijan.
“The co-chairs think that the text of the draft resolution is not balanced. They state that the text does not cover some points,” he said.
The ambassador noted that the co-chair countries had tried to balance the text of the draft resolution, but Azerbaijani side demanded the document to be put to the vote without amendments. Vasili Istratov also answered the question about change of OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries.
“There is no such an initiative and changing the mediators is a very difficult process. I think, the co-chairs are active and have stated that they are ready to continue to help the settlement of the problem,” he said.
