(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, January 30. Armenia has been
declining all invitations to negotiate, Deputy Foreign Minister of
Azerbaijan Elnur Mammadov said during the public hearing at the UN
International Court of Justice, trend reports.
'When Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia were due to meet on
December 23, 2022, for another round of talks, including to address
the situation around the Lachin road, it was Armenia that pulled
out of negotiations at the last minute without prior notice or
explanation,' he said.
Ever since, Armenia has declined all invitations to try to
resolve the matter, or provide the information that would enable
others to do so, the deputy FM noted.
According to Mammadov, Armenia has ceased upon the Lachin road
protest to try to create political leverage in the ongoing peace
negotiations between the two states, and, instead of trying to
resolve issues, it encourages hatred and fear of Azerbaijan and
'No plausible interpretation of these events could lead to the
conclusion that Azerbaijan is purposely seeking to harm ethnic
Armenian living in Karabakh,' he added.
