ArmInfo. There are no secondary issues in the draft peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan. RA Minister of Foreign Affairs Ararat Mirzoyan stated on May 24 during the government hour in the National Assembly.
He noted that part of the draft document is about fundamental and vital issues, the other part is intended to supplement the first part. On the second part of the draft document, it is much easier to reach an understanding. It was possible to come to an agreement on some points before the meeting of the heads of the foreign affairs departments of Armenia and Azerbaijan in Washington with the participation of the US Secretary of State. As a result of the Washington meeting, 2 more articles were added. But there is also the third package, which is the most problematic and refers to the most important issues, on which the parties are still far from understanding.
In general, analyzing the results of the meetings held in Washington, Brussels and Moscow, the Armenian Foreign Minister noted that he had a cautious optimism. "In the course of all the meetings, thorough negotiations aimed at mutual understanding were held, hich gives rise to optimism," he said. "By and large, nothing has been agreed until everything is agreed. We assume that we will continue negotiations until we agree," Mirzoyan said.
He also noted that for the Armenian side, the "red line" is the country's borders within 29.8 thousand square kilometers. At the same time he noted that Yerevan does not represent the final normalization of relations with Baku in the face of the threat of ethnic cleansing, the security and rights of the population of Nagorno- Karabakh. "There are these and other red lines, and negotiations in these areas continue," the RA Foreign Minister concluded.
