Pashinyan: It is necessary to strengthen the mechanisms for  investigating incidents and observing the ceasefire regime on the  Armenian-Azerbaijani border and in Nagorno-Karabakh

ArmInfo. "As of today, there are a number of factors that cast doubt on the possibility of establishing peace in the South Caucasus region. Despite political  efforts, and contrary to the trilateral statement signed in November  last year, people continue to die in Nagorno-Karabakh and on the  Armenian-Azerbaijani border. " This was stated on October 15 by the  Prime Minister of Armenia during the annual meeting of the heads of  the CIS member states, which is being held online.

In this regard, the Prime Minister of Armenia proposed to strengthen  the mechanisms of investigation of incidents, as well as the  mechanisms of control of the ceasefire regime and all military  operations. He noted that today the rhetoric of enmity, hatred,  constant threats and provocations have become a daily routine for the  Armenian population.

Pashinyan recalled that by winning the elections in June 2021, the  country's government received a mandate to open a new era of peaceful  development in Armenia and the region. "Many people do not want  peace, stability in our region, and in these conditions it is very  difficult to advance the peace agenda. But we are determined and will  do everything in our power to achieve this goal," he stressed.

At the same time, the head of the Armenian government noted that the  first step towards this could be a dialogue and a gradual overcoming  of hostility, unblocking of all transport and economic  communications.

As a result of the opening of transport communications, he said,  Armenia will receive a railway and automobile connection with Russia  and Iran through the territory of Azerbaijan, and the Azerbaijani  side - with the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic through the territory  of Armenia.

At the same time, Pashinyan raised the issue of Armenian prisoners of  war and other citizens detained by Azerbaijan, who, contrary to  Article 8 of the November 9, 2020 trilateral declaration, have not  yet been returned by Azerbaijan. "This is a purely humanitarian issue  and we hope for its early resolution," he said, assuring in this  context that Armenia is ready to complete the transfer of maps of  minefields that are in the rear of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces and  pose a humanitarian threat.  

At the same time, Pashinyan drew attention to the opening of the  so-called "Trophy Park" in Baku, in which visitors admired the  dummies of killed and bleeding Armenian soldiers. "More regrettably,  excursions were organized there for schoolchildren who proudly posted  their photos on social media against this backdrop. 

Recently we learned that the mannequins and helmets of the Armenian  soldiers have been removed from the park, which is, at least, not  bad, "he added.  

At the same time, the RA Prime Minister expressed his readiness to  start the process of demarcation and delimitation of borders between  Armenia and Azerbaijan. In this context, he noted that he hopes for  the support of the Russian Federation and other international  partners. 

,  he said, recalling the proposal by the Armenian side of the mirror  withdrawal of the armed units, taking into account the line of  borders, fixed and legally substantiated on the maps of the USSR.   Along this border, according to him, Russian and / or international  observers can be stationed. Summing up his speech, Pashinyan, noted  that the main issue is the signing of a peace treaty between Armenia  and Azerbaijan, for which it is necessary to restore the negotiation  process within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmanship.  

He also added that the beginning of a conversation with the aim of  normalizing relations with Turkey is another factor that could play a  catalytic role in this matter. In this regard, the Prime Minister  noted that the Russian Federation is ready to fully support this  process. Referring to the speech of the Azerbaijani president,  Pashinyan noted that the CIS platform is not a place for proceedings  and accusations.

"I would like to inform you that Armenia and Azerbaijan have  submitted claims to the International Court of Justice of The Hague.   I think that in the context of this process, all the accusations that  exist can be voiced. At least, we are going to argue our position in  this way",  he concluded.
