Pashinyan says Armenia not pleased with CSTO countries’ response
Yerevan /Mediamax/. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said today during the summit in Moscow dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the CSTO that “there is a problem of asynchronous voting of the member states of the structure, and often our votes are not simultaneous.”

 

 

“The problem is not new. Armenia has raised and discussed it many times in a working order. This issue needs further discussion. The issue of rapid response is important for Armenia. As you know, last year these days the Azerbaijani army infiltrated into the sovereign territory of Armenia. Armenia applied to the CSTO for the use of mechanisms envisaged by crisis response procedure.

 

 

Unfortunately, the organization’s response was not the one Armenia had expected. Also for a long time we were raising the issue of CSTO member states selling weapons to the countries unfriendly to Armenia and used against Armenia. The response of the CSTO member states during and after the 44-day war in 2020 did not make Armenia and the Armenian people very pleased,” he said.

YEREVAN, MAY 19, ARMENPRESS. The Armenian side has lawful substantiations on the existing Armenian exclaves in Azerbaijan, whereas Azerbaijan hasn’t yet produced any substantiations, the Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan said at a press briefing.

A reporter asked Grigoryan to comment on the statements made from Azerbaijan claiming that Azerbaijan has exclaves in Armenia which must be returned to them during delimitation.

 
 

Grigoryan said that Azerbaijan hasn’t presented any legal grounds on any exclaves. “Whereas the Armenian side has legal grounds on existing [Armenian exclaves] in Azerbaijani territory. And in this regard Armenia’s position continues to be the following: we expect Azerbaijan to present legal grounds over the exclaves it mentions, if they are raising such issues,” Grigoryan said.

Pashinyan: Armenia, Azerbaijan failed to agree on Karabakh wording
300520.jpg
May 26, 2022 - 11:46 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan has said that no agreement was reached between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the formulations on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict during an EU- mediated meeting on May 22.

Pashinyan, President of the European Council Charles Michel and Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev held their third meeting since December in Brussels on May 22 and focused on the situation in the South Caucasus and the development of EU relations with both countries as well as the broader region. According to a statement from the EU, Michel told the two leaders that it was necessary that the rights and security of the ethnic Armenian population in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) be addressed.

And because of a lack of agreement, Pashinyan said, Michel decided to make comments that, in his opinion, would express as many elements as possible about the positions of both sides over formulations

Pashinyan made the remarks during a Q&A session in parliament, in response to a question from Civil Contract Party member Arman Yeghoyan, who said that Michel's remarks created the impression that "Artsakh's right to self-determination remains out of the agenda".

"A very serious discussion on the Karabakh issue took place in Brussels, and as a result of that discussion, the differences between the positions of Armenia and Azerbaijan were registered," the Prime Minister as saying.

He emphasized that those differences are expressed publicly. Azerbaijan considers that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is resolved, Armenia considers that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is not resolved.

"And in the possible context of the peace talks, you know that Azerbaijan has presented its 5 principles, and we have presented our observations and agenda in this regard. We have said that talks should be held on that basis. With the principles we have brought forward, the security and rights of the Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh and the clarification of the final status of Nagorno-Karabakh are recorded," Pashinyan said.

«They shot us in foot»: Pashinyan blames former government for failed Karabakh negotiations
  • Yerevan
 

Pashinyan made the promised exposure of former government

Prime Minister оf Armenia Nikol Pashinyan issued another statement in which he blamed his predecessors for the failure of the negotiation process to resolve the Karabakh conflict. “They cut down the branch on which we all sat”, the prime minister said. He announced that his predecessors, having adopted the so-called Madrid principles as the basis for negotiations, delegitimized the procedures by which Nagorno-Karabakh declared its independence.

Pashinyan promised this “exposure” in the parliamentary session hall to opposition MPs who have been demanding his resignation since May 4. Both opposition factions are actually headed by two ex-presidents of Armenia – Robert Kocharyan and Serzh Sargsyan, although they do not participate in the work of parliament. However, the opposition left the hall without listening to the prime minister. Thus, the “exposure” was heard from the rostrum of the parliament, but in response to a question from a deputy from the ruling party.

The expert community categorically disagreed with the prime minister’s opinion.

“They gave Azerbaijan right to veto status of NK”

Pashinyan recalled that the Armenian narrative has always been as follows: Nagorno-Karabakh has never been part of independent Azerbaijan, it withdrew from the Soviet Union and Soviet Azerbaijan in accordance with the established procedure and following the results of a referendum

On December 10, 1991, a referendum was held in NK on the question: “Do you agree that the proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic be an independent state, independently determining the forms of cooperation with other states and communities?” 99.89% of the respondents voted in favor of the independence.

On January 6, 1992, the Supreme Council adopted the Declaration of State Independence of the NKR, “legislating the results of the referendum and the previously adopted legal acts on the realization of the right of the people of Nagorno-Karabakh to independently determine their political status”.

According to the Prime Minister of Armenia, in 2007, by accepting the Madrid principles as the basis for the negotiation process, the Armenian authorities “delegitimized” the independence referendum held in NK on December 10, 1991 and “gave Azerbaijan the right to veto the determination of the status of Nagorno-Karabakh”:

“When the Armenian side agreed that the future referendum should be held on the terms of mutual agreement with Azerbaijan, it cut down the branch on which we all sat. If, as we rightly argued, Nagorno-Karabakh has never been part of Azerbaijan, then why are we discussing with Azerbaijan the issue of obtaining its new status? And, on top of that, we are still saying that this should happen on the terms agreed with it”.

According to Pashinyan, the provision enshrined in the Madrid Principles that Azerbaijanis living in Nagorno-Karabakh should also take part in a future referendum dealt a blow to the legitimacy of the 1991 NKR independence referendum. The prime minister explains that in this way the Armenian side “indirectly recognized the problem of legitimacy” in connection with the holding of a referendum in 1991 without the participation of Azerbaijanis.

“The most sensational fact is that the Armenian side is actually the author or co-author of the Madrid Principles initiative”, the prime minister said, without going into further details.

After Pashinyan promised the oppositionists to come out with a denunciation, Ambassador-at-Large Edmon Marukyan commented on the Public Television on what the Prime Minister had in mind. The ambassador explained that by adopting the Madrid principles, “the referendum in Artsakh was actually declared invalid”, an agreement was reached on a new referendum in which the Armenian side agreed to the participation of Azerbaijanis in the same percentage as it was in the days of the USSR.

However, Marukyan recalls that during the referendum of 1991, an appropriate legal framework was formed: “Azerbaijanis did not want to participate in that referendum, and Armenia did not prevent them from doing so”.

Nikol Pashinyan claims that after taking office as prime minister, he was asked many times the question: “Do you accept the Madrid principles as a basis for negotiations?”. To which he answered: “First we need to understand what the Madrid principles mean”:

“I said from this rostrum that in response to my question to the co-chairs: “I am a new person, please, tell me, can Nagorno-Karabakh not be part of Azerbaijan within the framework of these principles?” – they answered after a short pause: “Yes – if Azerbaijan agrees”. By this, they once again confirmed our understanding of the Madrid principles, Azerbaijan has been given the right to impose a veto on the issue of determining the status of Karabakh”.

Expert commentary

Azerbaijanologist Tatevik Hayrapetyan described Pashinyan’s “sensational exposure” of the Madrid principles as “another illogical and manipulative statement.” In her opinion, this statement allowed Nikol Pashinyan to score another “victory” over the opposition, “at the same time creating the ground for another defeat for his state”:

“Pashinyan’s goal is “victories” exclusively in the domestic political field. In his speech, Pashinyan made an interesting statement, accusing the former government of “cutting down the branch on which we all sat”. Does he even realize that with his steps he is stubbornly cutting down the tree on which this state relies?

The expert believes that the Prime Minister’s recent statements, including those about “lowering the bar” on the status of Karabakh, “cast doubt on the very existence of Artsakh”. In her opinion, Pashinyan constantly weakens the negotiating position of the Armenian side, providing Azerbaijan with leverage.

As the Azerbaijanologist explains, the reality is as follows: from the very beginning of the negotiation process, the goal of the Armenian side was “to achieve the independence of Artsakh or international recognition of the results of the referendum on joining Armenia”. In this regard, the principle of the right of nations to self-determination was promoted.

“The Madrid document also indicated the ethnic composition that should participate in the referendum – according to the percentage of 1988, in which the absolute majority, 80%, were Armenians. That is, under the conditions of its implementation, Artsakh could not be part of Azerbaijan, it would be either independent or united with Armenia”, the expert emphasizes.

Political scientist Tigran Grigoryan considers the Prime Minister’s talk about the Madrid principles “cheap manipulation and demagogy”.

In his opinion, the Madrid Document enshrined the right of Nagorno-Karabakh to self-determination and provided the mechanism for its implementation, which is a significant achievement of Armenian diplomacy:

“If there was political will, even at this stage it could be useful. And the distortion of even positions that are beneficial to us for domestic political purposes is nothing more than activity against the state interests of Armenia”.

Aliyev's statements seriously question the sincerity of Azerbaijan's intentions to achieve peace. MFA Armenia

1084491.jpg 12:02, 28 May 2022

YEREVAN, MAY 28 ARMENPRESS. The statements made by the president of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev on May 27 once again testify to the continuation of the policy of un-constructiveness of the Azerbaijani side, the arbitrary, incorrect interpretations of the agreements, and the aggressive, belligerent policy, ARMENPRESS reports, reads the statement of the Foreign Ministry of Armenia.

"The aspirations for the sovereign territory of the neighboring state, the use of force to achieve these goals are nothing but contempt for the norms of international law, and seriously question the sincerity of Azerbaijan's intentions for peace in the region.

 
 

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia considers it necessary to reaffirm the principled position of the Armenian side that the talks on normalization of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan should be held on the basis of proposals of both sides, which should address the whole agenda of issues, including the final settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict”, reads the statement of MFA Armenia.

According to the Foreign Ministry, "with the speculations of the Azerbaijani side, an attempt is made to present the Nagorno Karabakh issue as a territorial dispute, while it is about the realization of the rights of the Artsakh Armenians and excluding the danger of ethnic cleansing”.

"In this regard, we remind you that the international mandate of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs received in 1995 to support the comprehensive settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict continues to exist.

We call on the leadership of Azerbaijan not to torpedo the discussions in the existing dimensions with belligerent, maximalist rhetoric.

At the same time, we call the attention of the international community to the statements made by official Baku, expect the unequivocal attitude of international partners, in the conditions of which it will only be possible to achieve stability and peace in the South Caucasus," the statement reads.

Brussels statement confirms no 'corridor' discussions were held, says Armenian security chief
 

The latest statement issued by the spokesman of European Council President Charles Michel confirms that no discussions on providing a “corridor” to Azerbaijan were held at the Brussels meeting between the Armenian and Azeri leaders on May 22, Secretary of Armenia’s Security Council Armen Grigoryan said on Thursday.

“There was a clarification from Brussels that no issue within the logic of a corridor was discussed,” he told a press briefing in the parliament, accusing the Azerbaijani authorities of making statements that are inconsistent with the content of the negotiations.

Speaking about Artsakh, the security chief highlighted that the rights and security of Artsakh Armenians should determine its status.

“We continues to attach importance to the rights and security of Armenians living in Artsakh. We are confident that it is rights and security that will determine the status. We will continue to work on it and will definitely achieve results,” Grigoryan said.
