Armenia receives new proposals on peace treaty from Azerbaijan

The negotiations over a peace treaty with Azerbaijan are a continual process and Armenia is resolutely involved in the talks, Armenian Foreign Minister Ararat Mirzoyan said at a joint press conference with German Minister of Foreign Affairs Annalena Baerbock.

“We have a goal to continue our active efforts in building sustainable and lasting peace in our region. I’d like to inform that a meeting between me, the Azerbaijani, and Russian foreign ministers was scheduled earlier in December. It had to take place in Moscow this time, but the Armenian side postponed participation due to the blockade of the Lachin corridor. And despite this, we conveyed our new proposals around a peace treaty to the Azerbaijani side. And I have to inform that a few days ago we received the Azerbaijani response and proposals. This is a continuous process, and we continue to work on the text, exchanging proposals and continuing discussions in several phases,” the Armenian Foreign Minister said.

Armenian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ararat Mirzoyan and German Minister of Foreign Affairs Annalena Baerbock had discussed the situation in South Caucasus.

Speaking at a joint press conference after their meeting in Berlin, German FM Annalena Baerbock said that the situation in South Caucasus is difficult. She attached importance to the results of the quadrilateral meeting between the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and France and the President of the European Council Charles Michel in Prague, where the sides reaffirmed the 1991 Alma-Ata Declaration, reciprocally recognizing each other’s territorial integrity. The German FM emphasized that this is an important decision for the region. “The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict exists for over thirty years, and it has led to major disasters. Many lives were lost, and many homes and buildings were destroyed. We know that wounds don’t heal quickly,” the German foreign minister said.
