ArmInfo. It is very dangerous when people do not understand the full importance of the issue, but are engaged in it. The second President of Armenia Robert Kocharian stated this in an interview with "Yerkir Media", "5th Channel" and "Second Armenian TV Channel" TV channels. Kocharian noted that the negotiations on Karabakh should be based on the NKR declaration of independence.
<Everything needs a foundation. If it is not there, then the consequences will be bad. However, I believe that it is still possible to catch up in the negotiation process, "the second president of Armenia emphasized.
He commented on the statements of the President of Azerbaijan about his intention to suspend negotiations. Kocharian noted that negotiations are better than any war, but blackmail in this matter is unacceptable. <It is necessary to demonstrate adherence to principles. Yes, there are risks, but we have always taken risks and achieved success. They do not want to negotiate, which means we will not negotiate either. When the representatives of Azerbaijan understand that there is no alternative to the negotiations, I assure you, they will resume them, "said the second president of Armenia.
Note that in July, the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev several times stated that Azerbaijan does not intend to participate in senseless negotiations. According to him, Baku will participate in them only if if they will be conducted in essence. He also accused the OSCE Minsk group is that the latter do not properly respond to the Prime Minister of Armenia, that Karabakh is Armenia.
According to Aliyev, the co-chairs are trying to please "ours and yours." The President of Azerbaijan also accused Armenia of saying that "Karabakh is Armenia" Yerevan negates the whole essence of the negotiations. In conclusion, Aliyev stressed that the thoughts about the need to change the format of the negotiations make them senseless.
