“How can we restore mutual trust if there are so many people expelled from their native lands?”, said Elmar Mammadyarov, Foreign Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan, in an interview with the Kommersant newspaper, ONA reports.
E. Mammadyarov stressed that any attempts to restore confidence in the negotiation process with real steps and demonstration of political to resolve the conflict, not aimed at eliminating the serious consequences of the conflict, will undoubtedly lead to failure: “Therefore, we must act on a stage-by-stage solution, which should, first of all, serve the withdrawal of occupying forces from Azerbaijan and the return of internally displaced persons. It will shape prominent conditions for confidence building. At least constant contact is required to trust each other. The Azerbaijani community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan is ready to return to its invaded places and to establish contacts with the Armenian community in the region, restore trust and return peace."
