Pashinyan not ready to come to negotiating table on Karabakh
The expert noted that Pashinyan’s provocative speech at the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly only confirms that he is not ready to come to the negotiating table on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and come to reasonable compromises in accordance with international law.
“This man, standing on the UN rostrum, pretended that he is not aware of the four UN Security Council resolutions and two UN General Assembly resolutions prescribing unconditional and immediate withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the occupied Azerbaijani regions, normalization of relations with the provision of security measures, opening of communications and return of refugees, and only then, in a peaceful atmosphere, with the participation of representatives of the Azerbaijani and Armenian communities of Nagorno-Karabakh, determination of its status,” Musabayov stressed.
He also noted that Pashinyan’s ranting, that Baku’s refusal to negotiate with the puppet regime in Nagorno-Karabakh means the intention to carry out an “Armenian genocide” there, is simply absurd.
“It was the Armenian groups who committed the genocide of Azerbaijanis in Khojaly and ethnic cleansing in the occupied regions, depriving more than 600,000 people of the basic right to live on the land of their ancestors,” Musabayov stressed.
The expert further noted that unless Pashinyan sobers up from the unexpectedly easy removal of his predecessor Serzh Sargsyan and euphoria from the victory of his supporters in the elections in Yerevan, one should not expect him to have a rational understanding of the situation and show responsible behavior in the negotiations.
“I am afraid the power of the Azerbaijani Army will have to be used to accelerate this process. I have a growing belief that otherwise it will be impossible to sober Pashinyan up. This is a dangerous and undesirable option, but Azerbaijan may have no other alternative,” Musabayov noted.
