No talk of withdrawing Karabakhi forces from any territory: Kocharyan responds to Mammadyarov

Instead of speaking about the agreements reached among Armenian, Azerbaijani and Russian presidents in Saint Petersburg, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov continues to present his baseless wishes as reality, Armenia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh Kocharyan told, asked to comment on Mammadyarov’s today’s statement.

Earlier on Friday Azerbaijani Foreign Minister said that on July 15 or 16 a meeting is scheduled between Serzh Sargsyan and Ilham Aliyev when the main topic on the agenda, according to him, will be the pull-out of Artsakhi troops from Lachin and Kelbajar – key regions ensuring ground contact between Armenia and Artsakh.

“There can be no talk of any withdrawal of Karabakhi forces from any territory unless Azerbaijan agrees to accept the status of Karabakh based on the results of the expression of the will of Nagorno Karabakhi people and unless it [Azerbaijan] expresses willingness to pull out its troops from the occupied territories of the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh,” said Shavarsh Kocharyan.
