ArmInfo. All the territories around Artsakh are important in terms of ensuring its security, a return to the past in terms of borders and no status. This was the reaction of the press secretary of the NKR President Bako Sahakyan David Babayan to yesterday's statement of Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian that within the framework of the Karabakh settlement those territories will be returned, the refusal of which will not jeopardize the security of Nagorno- Karabakh.
"Conflict must be resolved in such a way that later it does not lead to great losses and to new bloodshed. Now for Azerbaijan, the return to the initial positions of 1988 is more than profitable, Baku is striving for this, and what will happen with such a development of the situation in the future, what are the guarantees that Azerbaijan does not initiate new military actions? Or, say, the same Karvachar, where the source of 85% of the water resources of the former NKAO - the Arpa and Vorotan rivers - originates in Lake Sevan. What will happen to these water resources in the case of the transfer of Karvachar to Azerbaijan, where guarantees that Baku will not engage in "water terrorism?" Babayan asked. Moreover, he stressed, the settlement and compromises must be weighed and proportionate. "You can not give territory in return for promises. In exchange for promises, one can only give promises, "Babayan said, stressing that if we talk about territories, we must remember that Azerbaijan has many Armenian villages (Getashen, Martunashen, Artsvashen, Shahumyan) that must be returned.
"There will be no one-sided concessions, any one-sided concession will lead to disaster," Babayan concluded.
Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian at the Armenia-Diaspora Forum opened some details of the Armenian side's strategy in the Karabakh settlement. In particular, speaking of territorial concessions from the Armenian side, he stressed that those territories will be returned, in the transfer of which there will not be a threat to the security of Artsakh and the final settlement of the conflict will not be jeopardized. "If I reveal other details, the negotiations will cease," the minister said.
