ARMENIAN Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on Saturday that his country and Azerbaijan are speaking “different diplomatic languages” — even though they were able to agree on the basic principles for a peace treaty.
Azerbaijan waged a swift military campaign in September in the separatist region of Nagorno-Karabakh, ending three decades of rule by ethnic Armenians and forcing the vast majority of the 120,000 residents to flee the region, which is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan.
Addressing the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Mr Pashinyan said it was “good that the basic principles of peace with Azerbaijan have been agreed upon.”
The principles include Armenia and Azerbaijan recognising each other’s territorial integrity.
But Armenian state news agency Armenpress quoted Mr Pashinyan as going on to say: “We have good and bad news about the Armenia-Azerbaijan peace process.”
The prime minister said that rhetoric by Azerbaijani officials, including referring to Armenia as “Western Azerbaijan,” leaves the door open for further military aggression against Armenia.
“This seems to us to be preparation for a new war, a new military aggression against Armenia, and it is one of the main obstacles to progress in the peace process,” Mr Pashinyan said.
