Secretary of the Republican Party of Armenian parliamentary group
Eduard Sharmazanov said that the statements of the Turkish-Azerbaijani
tandem that Armenia should make some territorial concessions in the
Karabakh conflict settlement are ridiculous.

As for the Azerbaijani President's statements concerning withdrawal
of the Armenian troops from the so-called "occupied" territories,
NKR has never been and will never be within Azerbaijan's composition,
Sharmazanov said in the Armenian parliament.

"To achieve peace settlement of the Karabakh conflict, Azerbaijan
should first of all withdraw its troops from the annexed territories
of Shahumyan and Getashen, as well as create conditions for return
of Armenian refugees," he said.
