"We’ll only welcome any initiative that can contribute to the conflict’s peaceful settlement. However, the last years’ practice testify that the Karabakh conflict’s discussions at various international structures, outside the OSCE frames, not only are unproductive, but can yield reverse effect", the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic Deputy Foreign Minister Masis Mailian stated in an interview with KarabakhOpen.
According to the NKR Deputy FM, Azerbaijan attempts to initiate the conflict’s discussion within the international organizations’ frames to increase information-psychological confrontation in the region and put pressure on both Armenian parties. In Masis Mailian’s words, the wrong interpretation of the conflict’s essence, like in the report prepared by the PACE rapporteur on the Karabakh conflict can also harm the conflict settlement process.
Speaking of the Karabakh conflict settlement within the OSCE MG frames, the NKR Foreign Minister stated the Karabakh party was convinced the Nagorno-Karabakh’s representatives should take part in the talks as the conflict’s competent party.
Masis Mailian said the electoral processes to be held in RA and NKR would obviously influence on the rates of the negotiation process. ‘’Karabakh talks will be accelerated current fall’’, he noted.
Touching on the European Union’s stand in the Karabakh conflict settlement, Masis Mailian stated the EU officially supported the OSCE MG Co-Chairs’ actions. ‘’The EU has not elaborated specific activity program in our Republic, the EU representatives have only declared their intention to implement projects on the NKR’s territory’’, the NKR Deputy FM added.
