Yerevan: Today we do not have any guarantees that Azerbaijan will not  start new military actions

ArmInfo. Negotiations on the Karabakh settlement are necessary for solving two tasks - maintaining peace and forming an atmosphere of trust. RA Deputy Minister of  Foreign Affairs Shavarsh Kocharyan stated this in the conversation with journalists.

At the same time, he stressed the need to implement the Vienna and  St. Petersburg agreements to create an atmosphere of trust and  implement mechanisms to investigate border incidents.

Kocharyan recalled that the ceasefire agreement was signed between  Armenia, Artsakh and Azerbaijan in 1994, but Baku constantly violates  it, the apogee of which was the military aggression initiated by  Azerbaijan in April 2016. "How can we talk about progress in the  negotiations if there is no trust between the parties. Moreover, the  fact that Azerbaijan renounces its international obligations casts  doubt on any future agreement. It turns out that Baku can sign any  document at any time, and violate it the next day.  Today, we do not  have any guarantees that Azerbaijan will not start new military  actions, since it has chosen a method of force to resolve the  conflict," the deputy minister concluded.

In the near future the meeting of the heads of Armenia and  Azerbaijan, Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev, will take place. As the  co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group reported earlier, the two heads of  state expressed their readiness to return to the talks.

After the April war, the Armenian side stated that it was impossible  to continue the negotiations until the St. Petersburg and Vienna  agreements on the reduction of tension, the implementation of  mechanisms for investigating border incidents and creation of the  atmosphere of confidence, which Baku refuses.
