Azerbaijan Official: Maintaining Status Quo May Trigger New War In Karabakh


Maintaining status quo in Nagorno Karabakh conflict may cause a new war in the region, according to the head of Social and Political Department at Azerbaijan’s Presidential Administration.

“International community makes every effort to prevent Azerbaijan from renewal of war,” he said. “However, Azerbaijani President has repeatedly stated that Baku can lose all patience. Azerbaijan can not wait for eternal maintenance of the status quo in the conflict. Azerbaijan uses legal and other means to ensure territorial integrity,” Ali Hasanov said.

As he noted, the international community, especially the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, insistently call for changing current situation, considering its preservation unacceptable.

“Azerbaijan is being prevented from using other means,” he said. “Azerbaijan is not a militarist country. It does not lay claims on anybody’s land,” Trend News quoted him as saying.
