‘Somebody is looking for an excuse, now they found a pretext from the Ramil Safarov’s issue. They treat as if there was any progress towards the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict before Ramil Safarov’s release? Did Armenians give us any hope for the solution of the conflict?’ Azerbaijani Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Araz Azimov commented on the situation around the extradition and pardoning of Ramil Safarov.
Araz Azimov criticized the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs for their positions in this issue: “Perhaps the co-chairs try to take an advantage of the condition. Both Armenia and the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs negatively estimated the issue on Ramil Safarov. The co-chairs said in their report that the peaceful settlement of the conflict will become more difficult after this problem. But there have never been any progress in this process before. Armenians always took a negative position in the negotiations processes. Honestly, the co-chairs haven’t carried out any serious work towards the settlement of the conflict.”
