Today there is a great tension in the world and this worries the OSCE Minsk Group countries as well, said Novruz Mammadov, the assistant to the Azerbaijani president for foreign policy issues, head of department, APA reports.
From this point of view, it is almost certain that attention to the settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has decreased, noted Mammadov.
"Nevertheless, the OSCE Minsk co-chairs recently visited the region, held meetings with the Azerbaijani president. Delegates from the EU and OSCE also visited the region and held meetings. All this show that the process of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is underway,” he said.
The Azerbaijani official stressed that the Armenian side always tries to delay the negotiation process.
The Azerbaijani official stressed that the provision on territorial integrity and sovereignty in the declaration of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) summit held in November is of great importance.
“This is a great victory of Azerbaijan in the process of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. If European countries allowed double standards so far, this will not happen any more. This will also strengthen the attention of the Minsk Group co-chairs to the resolution of the conflict,” added Mammadov.
