Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov commented on the statement of his Armenian counterpart Ararat Mirzoyan about not accepting Azerbaijan's proposal to build a border checkpoint at the beginning of the Lachin road, APA reports.
According to the minister, if these points are created, everyone will see that the movement on Lachin road occurs in compliance with the requirements of the trilateral statement.
“We hope that so, all the tension would eliminate. During our working discussions with many international partners, this proposal was accepted as a sound and constructive proposal. However, unfortunately, Armenia did not respond to this in Munich. Two days later, Armenian Foreign Minister issued a statement that this proposal was not admissible to them. For us, it has several indicators. First is that Armenia is interested in continuation of trespass cases on Lachin road. This should raise question for everyone. The second point is that there are great contradictions in Armenia’s approach. The contradiction is that Armenia wants to exercise pressure on Azerbaijan by bringing this to agenda on all international platforms. On the other side once a constructive dialogue is offered to Armenia, Armenia unreasonably avoids it,” the minister noted.
