Baku. 15 February. REPORT.AZ/ 'We are not against discussions on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict at regional and international organizations. We support the rights of Azerbaijan and Armenia to raise this issue as they want. Co-chairs emphasize that format of the negotiations, which adopted by the Minsk Group remains. We believe that being loyal to their obligations, Armenia and Azerbaijan will closely cooperate with the Minsk Group to resolve the conflict by negotiations.
Report informs, US Co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group James Warlick said in his interview to 'Voice of America', answering the question 'Azerbaijani government sharply criticized the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs calls on the resolution regarding Nagorno-Karabakh to the European Council to Parliamentary Assembly.
