Pashinyan not ready to come to ne­go­ti­at­ing ta­ble on Karabakh

Azer News - - Karabakh Conflict - By Rashid Shiri­nov

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.
