- 23 January 2018
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry hosted regular political consultations with Germany on Jan. 23.
Azerbaijan was represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Khalaf Khalafov and Germany by Director for Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia of the Federal Foreign Office Andreas Peschke, the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry told APA.
Referring to the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Khalafov pointed out that the German government’s decision not to grant visas to representatives of the separatist regime created in Azerbaijan’s occupied territories is highly appreciated as Germany’s support for a peaceful resolution of the conflict and the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
Peschke, in turn, said that Germany adheres to the unequivocal position on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and supports the settlement of the conflict based on the principles of the Helsinki Final Act.
He noted that Germany, during its OSCE Chairmanship, made efforts to achieve progress in resolving the conflict.
