Answer of the Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Anna Naghdalyan to the question of Interfax News Agency17 July, 2020
Question: How do you comment on the statements recently made by the Azerbaijani leadership regarding the peace process?
Answer: The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has three parties that have signed the ceasefire agreement.
In the past, Azerbaijan negotiated with both Nagorno-Karabakh and the Republic of Armenia. Then Azerbaijan refused to negotiate with Nagorno-Karabakh. And now if Azerbaijan refuses to negotiate with Armenia on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, it is not clear with whom this country will negotiate. We don’t know whether Azerbaijan intends to resume negotiations with the Nagorno-Karabakh side or not.
Recently, Azerbaijan has been trying to resort to the threats of war presented in different wrappings. If this recent threat to withdrawal from the negotiations is yet another manifestation of those threats, then it neither surprises nor impresses us.
Armenia rejects the language of threats and stands for a peaceful solution of the issue.
