Baku/09.08.22/Turan: Armenia is delaying the implementation of the agreements on the Zangezur corridor, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said today in an interview with a number of Turkish media. He stressed that Azerbaijan would in any case establish transport communications with the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic (NAR).

“The construction of the first bridge across the Araz River has already begun. That is, we have an alternative transport connection with Nakhchivan (through Iran - Turan's note),” Bayramov said.

He stressed that Azerbaijan will definitely create communications in the NAR. “It's just that Armenia has been given a chance not to be left out of regional cooperation. If Yerevan does not make the right decision, then the damage will be inflicted on them,” the Azerbaijani minister said.

According to him, Armenia is also evading the creation of a working group to prepare a peace treaty. At the beginning of 2022, Azerbaijan put forward the fundamental principles of a future peace treaty with Armenia. They were sent to Armenia.

“All articles of this document comply with international law, the territorial integrity of states,” Bayramov further noted. However, Armenia accepts these principles in words, but in practice it drags out the process in every possible way, evading the creation of a working group on a peace treaty. “We are committed to our obligations, we expect the same from the opposite side,” Bayramov said.

Azerbaijan's position is to fully implement the agreements reached through the mediation of Russia and the EU. Bayramov emphasized that Azerbaijan insists on the complete withdrawal of Armenian troops from the territories in the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers.

The minister recalled that, according to paragraph 4 of the Joint Statement of the leaders of Azerbaijan, Armenia and the Russian Federation, the Armenian armed formations were to be withdrawn in parallel with the deployment of the Russian peacekeeping contingent.

"Azerbaijan insists on the implementation of this clause," Bayramov said. We demand this from Armenia,” the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister said. --06B--
