ArmInfo. Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov does not hide the fact that Baku will continue to make efforts to disband the Artsakh Defense Army.
According to Azerbaijani media, during today's press conference, Bayramov once again accused Armenia of being destructive and torpedoing the negotiation process to normalize relations.
At the same time, he stressed that the Azerbaijani side will continue efforts to withdraw the Armenian Armed Forces from Artsakh. At the same time, he assured that Armenia has undertaken such an obligation. Then he announced his readiness to ensure the rights of Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians within Azerbaijan and assured that Baku is open for dialogue on this matter.
We note that, the people of Artsakh, who declared their self-determination 30 years ago, have been feeling the real Azerbaijani policy of ensuring the so-called rights for the third week already, and understand very well what they should really expect in case of such a development of the situation.
"Certain steps are being taken in this direction, and they will be continued. If someone deliberately interferes in this process a and a person with a dirty reputation is brought into the region, then this is a blow to normalization and dialogue. Azerbaijan is able to stop all this," Bayramov said, hinting at the activities of Artsakh State Minister Ruben Vardanyan. He also stated that at the beginning of 2023, Azerbaijan will file lawsuits against Armenia for allegedly "damaging the environment and illegal exploitation of resources." It is noteworthy that the representative of the state that used phosphorus ammunition during the aggression against Artsakh in the fall of 2020 is now talking about ecology. He also considered unacceptable the proposal of the Russian side to postpone the issue of the status of Artsakh until better times. clothes blocked the Stepanakert-Goris highway, again "for environmental reasons." Armenian telegram channels have already identified employees of the special services of Azerbaijan among the so-called ecologists. The Azerbaijanis are behaving loosely, trying to provoke Russian peacekeepers, and have set up a tent on the only road linking Artsakh with Armenia. The road remains closed to this day. The so-called Azerbaijani environmentalists, who were lit up in the photo with a demonstration of the symbol of Turkish "Gray Wolves" ultranationalists, said that they would remain on the road until the head of the peacekeeping contingent, Andrei Volkov, arrived. In addition, from the evening of December 13, Azerbaijan also shut off the valve of the gas pipeline through which gas is supplied to the population of Nagorno-Karabakh. The gas supply was restored three days later. It is noteworthy that the Azerbaijanis, who blocked the Stepanakert-Goris highway after environmental requirements, also voiced political ones, namely the control and activities of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Security Service of Azerbaijan throughout the territory of the Republic of Artsakh. We add that the first provocations by the so-called environmentalists began on December 3 with the blocking of the Berdzor (Lachin) corridor connecting Artsakh with Armenia. Over the past week, the enemy side periodically undertook various kinds of provocations both against the Russian peacekeepers in the NKR and against the civilian population. And already on December 10, a group of Azerbaijanis tried to get into two mines operating in the NKR, however, the Karabakh people did not allow them to get into the mines. We emphasize that on December 25 a large rally was held in Stepanakert demanding to unblock the road of life. According to some estimates, up to 70 thousand people attended the rally. In total, about 120 thousand citizens live in the Republic.
