Azerbaijan reacts as Armenia responds to peace proposal

Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov has reacted to Yerevan's 6-clause response on the normalization of relations to the 5-point proposal sent by Baku earlier, reports.

Azerbaijan in mid-March disclosed the contents of its single-page proposal on normalization of relations with Armenia, which contains five "principles", including "the mutual recognition of sovereignty, territorial integrity, inviolability of international borders and political independence of each other."

Secretary of the Security Council of Armenia Armen Grigoryan said on May 5 that one of the clauses of the Armenian side's response is that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be resolved in order to have a comprehensive peace agreement.

Bayramov has now revealed four other clauses from the document sent by Armenia, which include territorial integrity, the importance of implementing the trilateral statements of November 9, 2020, January 11 and November 26, 2021․

Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Khalaf Khalafov said on Tuesday, May 10 that after the Brussels meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders, Baku "has come to the conclusion that the Armenian side wants to conclude a peace agreement and start the process of delimitation."

Khalafov noted that peace talks will be held on the basis of Azerbaijan's proposal, which consists of five points.
