"Azerbaijan strives for this not only in words but also in deeds. I will not go into details now, but give 3 concrete examples," said Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said at a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Baku, APA reports.
He recalled that immediately after the end of the war, Azerbaijan stated its readiness to turn the page of the war and begin to restore peace between the two countries.
The minister advised those, who considered it was easy to voice such opinion, to visit the liberated territories: “And let them see what we saw there. It takes political courage to voice such a statement so openly in such a short period of time after all those happened. Although more than a year has passed, there has been no reaction from the other side. "
According to the Foreign Minister, in February 2022, Azerbaijan took the next step and submitted to the Armenian side 5 main principles for the restoration of international relations: “By the way, this step was welcomed and followed by the diplomatic activity. Finally, thirdly, I would like to mention that, during our discussions, during our discussions today, we have made the most progress in opening the communication links among the possible tracks related to the normalization of Azerbaijani-Armenian relations. It is true that there is nothing concrete in this regard, but in any case, we think that normalization is important and progress can be made. I reminded that it was the Azerbaijani side that demanded the inclusion of a clause on the establishment of communication ties in the trilateral statement.
