YEREVAN. – The Armenian side is committed to the international principles in Nagorno-Karabakh talks, Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) MP Gagik Minasyan said at a press conference on Wednesday adding the conflict should be solved based on the principles of nations’ right to self-determination, territorial integrity and non-use of force or threat of force.
“The Personal Representative of the Chairperson-in-Office, Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk also claimed the aforesaid provisions in his latest report,” Minasyan said adding Armenia is a negotiating side, as Karabakh has no opportunity to be presented currently at negotiating table.
“I think it is a matter of time,” Minasyan added.
To note, the 39th plenary session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (PABSEC) has been launched in Yerevan, Turkish and Azerbaijani delegations are also participating.
In addition, Azerbaijani MP Asef Hajiyev said that there can be no economic cooperation between Armenia and Azerbaijan unless “Armenia withdraws from the occupied lands.”
“I am not linking Armenian-Azerbaijani relations to the opening of Armenian-Turkish border. This refers only to Armenia and Turkey,” Hajiyev said.
