The Karabakh issue has never been a territorial issue, but a question of self-determination. Armen Grigoryan responded to Aliyev's speech at the UN

"Both at the pre-election stage and after the elections, we talked about establishing peace in the entire region, opening an era of peace, as well as stability, and within the framework of this logic, we should also establish relations with Turkey. This settlement should be gradual, and we are sure that one of the possibilities for resolving these relations is a dialogue at the high and highest level. We also talked about this at a high level and stated at various political levels that Armenia is ready to normalize relations with Turkey," the Secretary of the Security Council Armen Grigoryan said this in an interview with journalists today.

He stressed that Armenia is normalizing relations with Turkey, and it is necessary to separate the normalization of relations with Turkey from the normalization of relations with Azerbaijan. Touching upon the issue of the status of Nagorno-Karabakh, Grigoryan stressed that the OSCE Minsk Group is the only and important platform for the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

"All the Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, the United States, France, made a statement that it is necessary to resume negotiations within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group. One important issue needs to be discussed within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group - the issue of status. The Nagorno-Karabakh issue has not been settled, and the issue of the status of the Nagorno-Karabakh is waiting for its solution, and we see this solution within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group. Such statements of Azerbaijan are incomprehensible," Grigoryan said.

Referring to the statement of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev that Armenia should either make territorial demands or establish good relations with neighboring states, Grigoryan stressed that the Nagorno-Karabakh issue has never been a territorial issue, but a question of self-determination.

"The Karabakh issue has never been a territorial issue, but a question of self-determination. We have been talking about this for more than 30 years. And the Karabakh issue should be settled within the framework of the right to self-determination," Grigoryan said.
