Pashinyan: “We did not undertake any corridor obligations”

The day after Aliyev’s speech, during a government meeting, Pashinyan again responded to the demand for a corridor through the territory of Armenia. He stressed that there are “ambiguous comments regarding the corridor” and accusations of non-fulfillment of their obligations from Azerbaijan:

“I have to repeat that Armenia has never taken on any written or verbal obligations [to provide a corridor through its territory] and will never accept any such comments.”

He reiterated that Yerevan is ready to unblock regional transport, but this should happen “within the framework of the sovereignty and jurisdiction of the countries.” That is, we are talking about the possibility of providing roads on which each of the countries will retain its sovereign rights. While the term “corridor” means the loss of control of the country in this territory.

Pashinyan recalled that the Armenian government has put into circulation a project according to which it plans to establish three checkpoints on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border:

“This decision is not made because of the destructive approach of Azerbaijan, which did not even initiate such a process on its part and does not want to provide roads to Armenia, continuing its 30-year policy of blockade of Armenia.”
“There is some progress, but not significant”
This is Pashinyan’s opinion on the talks held in Washington between the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan.

“Unfortunately, the text of the peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan is not yet ready for signing,” he said.

However, the Armenian prime minister hopes that at the upcoming meeting in Brussels with Ilham Aliyev, through the mediation of the head of the European Council, it will be possible to “materialize the progress recorded in Washington.”

He repeated his position on the lack of alternatives to the peace agenda, once again separating the signing of the peace agreement from the settlement of the Karabakh conflict:

“The rights and security of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh should be resolved within the framework of the international mechanisms of the Baku-Stepanakert dialogue, and Armenia and Azerbaijan should sign a peace treaty.”
