ArmInfo."Armenia's destructive position on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict poses a serious threat to regional security." The Minister of Defense of Azerbaijan Zakir Hasanov made such an accusation against Armenia during a meeting with the newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of France to Azerbaijan, Zachary Gros.
At the same time, he assured that the solution to the issue was "forcing" Armenia to fulfill the requirements of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions on the basis of the norms and principles of international law, forgetting to indicate that these resolutions were adopted at the time of hostilities and were called upon to stop the fire, and their implementation not intended for the period after 1994-95.
At the same time, he praised the cancellation by the relevant courts of France of a number of, as he put it, the illegal agreements signed between some cities of France and local authorities of Artsakh, forgetting that all these agreements were humanitarian in nature and aimed at the development of the NKR. Hasanov also expressed hope that France, as a co-chairing country of the OSCE Minsk Group, will make more efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
