ArmInfo. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict can only have a political solution, and the only format for achieving it is the co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group. The Armenian  Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan said this in an interview with  the French Le Figaro.

He recalled that on April 15, at the initiative  of the Russian side, a meeting took place in Moscow between the  Foreign Ministers of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia, which at some  stage were joined by the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group and the  Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office. Mnatsakanyan  also stated that the meeting took place after the meeting of the  leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Vienna on March 29."From our  point of view, the target of the problem is the security of 150  thousand people living in Artsakh. 

This population is under constant threats, given the atmosphere of  hatred that has been sown against Armenians. The settlement can only  be political, and the only format to achieve it is the MG co-  chairmanship OSCE. But at the same time it is necessary to ensure an  atmosphere conducive to peace and people-to-people contacts. We  cannot negotiate against the background of an atmosphere of hatred,  "the Armenian Foreign Minister said, adding that the security of  people it and the status of Artsakh are priority settlement  issues.According to Mnatsakanyan, 150 thousand people living in  Artsakh should participate in the negotiation process, as they are  the guarantors of the Armenian identity, an identity that still faces  denial of the genocide.Mnatsakanyan also stated that France  recognized the Armenian Genocide in 2001, and not so long ago the  French leader Emmanuel Macron established April 24 as the Day of  Remembrance of the Victims of the Armenian Genocide. "This decision  deeply touched the Armenian people. 

They wanted to wipe us completely off the face of the earth. But we  survived, strengthened and developed - this is a victory. But,  unfortunately, we still feel the consequences of the Turkish policy  of denial. This denial concerns not only Armenians, but also of all  mankind. The President of Turkey simply threw out the Zurich  Protocols on the normalization of Armenian-Turkish relations, signed  in 2009. We were committed to these protocols and were ready to  normalize relations with Turkey without preconditions, "Mnatsakanyan  concluded.
