ArmInfo. The head of the office of the second president of Armenia Robert Kocharian, Victor Sogomoyan, is concerned about the situation around the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
So, on December 12, in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the Third Session of the Russian- Armenian Lazarevsky Club, touching upon this issue, Soghomonyan stated that he did not remember such that one of the parties would suddenly declare the need for participation in the negotiations of the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno-Karabakh .
"To this day, the concept according to which the Armenian authorities are participating in these negotiations is incomprehensible. Moreover, they said that no negotiations. At least until the last period. Today, I personally read an interview with Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov to one of the Azerbaijani TVs, which contains statements that require immediate refutation. If these refutations are late or they are not there, then this is true. Moreover, the status of Nagorno-Karabakh within Azerbaijan is being discussed, "the head of the office of the second president of Armenia noted.
He reiterated the need for clarification of the Armenian concept on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict by the authorities. Soghomonyan expressed hope that this will happen soon, and with clear formulations, and not lyrical excerpts, to which society has already become accustomed recently.
It should be noted that Mamedyarov said on the eve that during the negotiations from the Armenian side various documents appeared, the last of which is the "Lavrov Plan". Lavrov's Plan is the result of intense discussions some two years ago in Moscow. But it is still based on the Madrid principles. There is a statement by the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group on March 9, 2019, which just defines the vision of mediators to move forward in the negotiations. The essence is very simple - phasing. At the first stage, the withdrawal of troops, the return of the Azerbaijani population, ensuring security, establishing communications. Therefore, our proposal to the Armenian side can be described as "a world with the prospect of prosperity," "the minister said.
