ArmInfo. The Armenian Foreign Ministry responded to the statement by the Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Ogtay Asadov that issue of the territorial integrity of  the Republic of Azerbaijan is included in the agreement between the  EU and Azerbaijan, which is being prepared for signing.

Spokesperson of the Armenian Foreign Ministry Anna Naghdalyan,  referring to this statement by the head of the legislative body of  Azerbaijan, stated that the documents around which the EU is in talks  with partners are not public in nature and are available only to the  parties involved in the negotiation process.  <As for the position of  the European Union on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh  conflict, it is clearly reflected in the agreement on a comprehensive  and enhanced Armenia-EU partnership, where the principles of conflict  resolution also indicate the right of peoples to self-determination.  Moreover, this position was repeatedly confirmed by high-ranking EU  officials, and support was expressed for the efforts of the OSCE  Minsk Group co-chairs, "the representative of the Armenian Foreign  Ministry emphasized.

Armenia has repeatedly stated at various platforms, continued  Naghdalyan, and again emphasizes the unacceptability of any double  standards on this issue that may contradict the approaches of the  Minsk mediators endowed with an international settlement mandate, and  which may obstruct the peace process. It should be noted that today  the Azerbaijani media spread the statement of the speaker of the  Milli Majlis of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Ogtay Asadov, regarding  the Azerbaijan-EU relations. Thus, Asadov, in particular, informed  that on May 13 it is planned to sign an agreement between the EU and  Azerbaijan, which will also include a point on the territorial  integrity of Azerbaijan. "Above the agreement with the EU, work was  carried out for many years. One of the goals envisaged that the  agreement reflected the territorial integrity and inviolability of  the borders of Azerbaijan. And, we have achieved this. There are some  small questions that are being worked on'', the speaker said. It is  noteworthy that a few hours later, Asadov's statement was withdrawn  from the information portals, and the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry  issued a statement in which Asadov's statements regarding the signing  of the document on May 13 were refuted.
