In Moscow, Pashinyan reacts to Aliyev`s wording of so-called  Zangezur corridor

In Moscow, Pashinyan reacts to Aliyev`s wording of so-called  Zangezur corridor

ArmInfo.:  Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made a similar  "small remark" at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council  in Moscow.

It should be noted that in his speech, Ilham Aliyev, in the context  of economic cooperation, mentioned the so-called .

 

On the other hand, I want to reiterate the readiness of the Republic  of Armenia to open all transport and economic ties in the region and  communications that pass through the territory of Armenia - we call  it the "Armenian Crossroads". We are ready to open regional  communications within the framework of the sovereignty and  jurisdiction of the countries through which they pass>, the Armenian  Prime Minister pointed out.

In turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that President Aliyev  spoke about creating conditions in connection with the recognition of  the relevant borders, confirmed by the 1991 agreements. "These  conditions give reason to believe that appropriate agreements can be  reached between Armenia and Azerbaijan, including on transport  communications. I am very pleased to note that Armenia also thinks  positively in this regard. We may discuss all this at a trilateral  meeting today. I hope that it will be possible to agree on what is  clearly in the interests of the economic development of both  Azerbaijan and Armenia, and indeed the entire region>, he said,  expressing the hope to discuss all this later, at the upcoming  trilateral meeting, in detail.

President Aliyev, in turn, decided to respond, in his remarks to the  accusation that Baku had territorial claims against Armenia, stating  that "there are no such claims." , he said.  He stated that there are opportunities  to reach a peace agreement. "Moreover, taking into account the fact  that Armenia officially recognized Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan,"  he added.

The Prime Minister of Armenia again reacted to this, saying that  people familiar with the text of the tripartite statement of November  9, 2020 know that there is only one use of the word in the  text, and in this context this word has a special meaning.  

At the same time, Pashinyan confirmed that Armenia and Azerbaijan  have agreed on the mutual recognition of territorial integrity and,  on this basis, are progressing "quite well" in the process of  normalizing relations.  He also expressed hope that a constructive  dialogue between Stepanakert and Baku on the rights and security of  the people of Nagorno-Karabakh would soon begin within the framework  of the international mechanism.

In response, the Azerbaijani leader said that "accusations were  voiced  again" while there were no accusations in his words, and  therefore "he cannot leave this unanswered." "Azerbaijan has not  blocked any corridor, and as for the Lachin-Khankendi road, it is  open. On the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which you  recognize, a border checkpoint has been established in accordance  with all international standards. This border checkpoint is located  20 meters from the post of the Russian peacekeeping contingent. And  today, through this border checkpoint, residents of Azerbaijan of  Armenian nationality, who live in Karabakh, freely move towards  Armenia. There are no obstacles," he said, calling not to use the  platform for "unfounded accusations." As for the so-called, Zangezur  corridor, then, according to Aliyev, he stated in his speech that  "Azerbaijan was the one who initiated its establishment." "It is our  right to initiate whatever we consider correct, legitimate,  reasonable, and what is supported, including by the Russian  Federation and other parties involved in the process," he said.

The Prime Minister of Armenia said in response that he was "very  interested to know whether Russia supports this project." , Pashinyan pointed out.

Everything that is happening there, according to him, is a direct  violation of the tripartite statement.  

Azerbaijan also blocked the supply of gas and electricity to  Nagorno-Karabakh. Vladimir Vladimirovich, you are very well aware of  this, since we have repeatedly spoken about this>, Nikol Pashinyan  said.

"The colleagues expressed their position, formulated it, it is  important for them. At the end of this part, I want to say this - it  seems to me that the terminology, which, you and I are very well  aware of, is called in another word , ,  , etc., etc. - this is important, but much more important is  what you just said - that on fundamental issues - issues of  territorial integrity there is an agreement, also of a principled  importance. This is really the basis for agreeing on issues of a  secondary importance, although they are also of significant  importance," the President of the Russian Federation said, thus  completing the debate and assuring that all those present were  interested in the parties taking "the path of constructive  development."
