"Azerbaijan's isolation in its destructive policy was once again
demonstrated in Astana," Armenian Deputy Foreign Minister Shavarsh
Kocharyan said, commenting on the outcome of the OSCE summit in Astana.

According to the Deputy Foreign Minister, three important factors
were clearly emphasized in both the joint statement and the separate
speeches of high-ranking officials of different countries.

"First, it's not allowed to give preference to any of the main
principles of international law, ignoring the others. Second, the
use of force is categorically rejected in the settlement of conflicts.

Third, it is necessary to reinforce the ceasefire regime and pull
back the snipers from the line of contact," he stated.

"This was another attempt by the international community to bring
Azerbaijan to the constructive field," Shavarsh Kocharyan said, adding
that if Baku really wants to solve the issue instead of maintaining
the status, it should put an end to its destructive policy.
