Pashinyan: If Azerbaijan is uncompromising, then Yerevan will press  its point - Artsakh is Armenia and that`s final

ArmInfo. Armenia will not  go to the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict amid threats  from Azerbaijan. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan announced  this on September 16 at a conference in Vanadzor.

At the same time, he emphasized that Armenia has repeatedly stated  its readiness to conduct constructive and comprehensive negotiations  to find ways to resolve the conflict. "Do not speak with Armenia in  the language of threats, it is useless. We say we need to stop this  show and go to comprehensive negotiations," the Prime Minister of  Armenia noted.

Touching on the statements of the former American co-chair of the  OSCE Minsk Group Matthew Bryza, Pashinyan stated that his statement  on August 5 at the Renaissance Square in Stepanakert that "Artsakh is  Armenia" caused heated discussions. However, he recalled that this  statement was preceded by his other statement, which was made on  March 12. According to him, then he stated that the Armenian side  should understand that there is an amplitude of Madrid principles in  Karabakh. "In addition, I also said that the resolution of the  Karabakh conflict should be acceptable for the people of Armenia,  Artsakh and Azerbaijan. It is also worth noting that I am the only  Armenian leader who also pointed out the need to take into account  the opinions of the Azerbaijani population, for which I was sharply  criticized by of my own society, and I also said that I expected a  similar statement from the leadership of Azerbaijan. What did we get  in response, almost a year has passed since I made that statement,  and from Azerbaijan there are statements that the Karabakh conflict  can be resolved only by ensuring the territorial integrity of  Azerbaijan, implying the inclusion of Artsakh in Azerbaijan,  "Pashinyan said, adding that if Baku takes such an uncompromising and  categorical position, then Yerevan will press its point - Artsakh is  Armenia and that's final." 

He also asked what Bryza was doing today, maybe in sober fact, he did  not have enough information about the negotiation process, as he  insisted. "And if the Karabakh conflict was so easy to solve, then  what Mr. Bryza did not solve this issue while being co-chair of the  OSCE Minsk Group," he concluded.

Earlier, Bryza in an interview with Georgian Internet television  Starvision TV in particular stated: "Since the legal status of  Nagorno-Karabakh should be determined only through negotiations,  Armenia could achieve this only through negotiations. It is foolish  that one of the parties to the negotiation process takes the main  prize, not giving in exchange nothing. " According to Matthew Bryza,  Pashinyan "is not a fool, but an intelligent person," but the problem  is that he is under enormous pressure from the Karabakh group.  "No  matter how skillfully Pashinyan leads the campaign, how popular he  is, this group will never allow him to gain political power. This  group also has strong support from the north," Bryza added. According  to the former co-chair, Pashinyan makes such statements in order to  protect himself from the pressure of the "Karabakh clan", in fact, he  wants to negotiate with Azerbaijan to the end. "I was informed about  this in Baku, too, at a very high level," Bryza said.

The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) has blocked Bryza's  approval of Congress as an ambassador. According to Bryza, Armenian  organizations in the US are also putting pressure on Pashinyan,  because for them the Karabakh conflict is a way to earn money and  raise money from American Armenians.
