"Although the three countries undertook to resolve the conflict under the guise of co-chairing the OSCE Minsk Group, they have done nothing but complicate the situation for 30 years. During this period, our Azerbaijani brothers have always made efforts to resolve the conflict through dialogue and mutual understanding. Nevertheless, the Armenian side has continued provocations from time to time, closing the dialog.
