ArmInfo. The speeches of Ilham Aliyev practically do not change and are very similar to each other, the head of the "My Step" faction Lilit Makunts said in an interview with reporters.
''The latest speech by the President of Azerbaijan was still different from the previous ones, since it contained an element of blackmail. What does he mean, to refuse negotiations? The Armenian authorities have repeatedly noted that the settlement of the Karabakh conflict is possible only peacefully. But, we are ready for any development of events and we will protect the security of our country at any cost>, the lawmaker emphasized.
It should be noted that in his latest statement, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said that Azerbaijan does not intend to participate in meaningless negotiations. According to him, Baku will participate in them only if they are conducted substantially. He also accused the OSCE Minsk Group that the latter did not properly respond to the statement of the Prime Minister of Armenia that Karabakh is Armenia. According to Aliyev, the co-chairs are trying to please both sides. The President of Azerbaijan also accused Armenia that by stating that "Karabakh is Armenia" Yerevan crosses out the whole essence of the negotiations. In conclusion, Aliyev emphasized that ideas about the need to change the format of negotiations make them meaningless.
