Mammadyarov hopes to open a new phase of substantive negotiations at  the meeting with Mnatsakanyan in Bratislava 

Mammadyarov hopes to open a new phase of substantive negotiations at  the meeting with Mnatsakanyan in Bratislava 

ArmInfo.Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov spoke about his presentation of the agenda of negotiations with his Armenian counterpart Zohrab  Mnatsakanyan at a meeting in Bratislava tomorrow, December 4.

So, on December 3, in Baku at a joint press conference with Russian  Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, answering the corresponding question  of the Russian journalist, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar  Mammadyarov joked that he expected more interest from Azerbaijani  journalists than Russian journalists on this topic at the same time  expressing gratitude for the opportunity to present his position on  the agenda of the meeting.

"The expectations from tomorrow's meeting are such that,  nevertheless, we will move forward. As Mr.  Sergey and I have already  said, we should do our best to move forward, since the status quo  that exists today does not suit anyone. The co-chairs say this in  almost all of their statements and comments, and because they  understand that a solution needs to be found on this issue. Yes,  there are certain problems, "Mammadyarov said, and in this context,  referring to yesterday's statement by his Armenian counterpart on the  agenda of the meeting in Bratislava.

According to him, yesterday Mnatsakanyan told reporters that status  and security will be on the agenda of the meeting in Bratislava. At  the same time, he added that in terms of statistics all approaches  have long been known. "With regard to security, the agenda includes  the definition of understanding the security term in the Armenian and  Azerbaijani terms," he said, recalling several examples of various  decisions, including those adopted at the Budapest Summit on the part  of the peacekeeping forces from 1994.

The Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan stated that the security issue is  complex, including for the Azerbaijani side, since if the RA raises  the issue of security for the Armenian population of  Nagorno-Karabakh, then the issue of security of Azerbaijani displaced  persons after returning to their places of residence in  Nagorno-Karabakh will be important for Azerbaijan. " "We need a clear  assessment of how the security issue is seen, and we turned to  mediators on this issue. But for this we need serious substantive  negotiations and I hope that tomorrow we will open this new phase of  substantive negotiations," Mammadyarov summed up.

In turn, Lavrov noted that in Bratislava, in addition to the  Mnatsakanyan-Mammadyarov meeting, the Foreign Ministers of Armenia  and Azerbaijan will meet separately with the co-chairs of the OSCE  Minsk Group. "Every year at the OSCE summit, we strive to fix on  paper a commitment to the fundamental principles of a settlement,  achieved many years ago, and retain our vitality and relevance. And  if it works out, we would like to adopt a five-sided statement (two  ministers and co-chairs), if it doesn't work out to make it for some  reason, the three co-chairs will make a statement in any case, which  will be fixed on paper. But still, I hope that this will be a  five-sided statement, "Lavrov concluded.
