AZERBAIJAN'S BEHAVIOR CAUSES BACKLASH

The aggressive behavior of Azerbaijan in the negotiations over Karabakh
causes a backlash, said the deputy foreign minister Shavarsh Kocharyan
at the parliament. He noted that recognition of NKR by a number of
American states is important as they are the first sprouts.

Such behavior of Azerbaijan will accelerate the process of recognition
of NKR.

"Azerbaijan makes bellicose statements, it threatens to resolve
the conflict by force, it would not withdraw snipers from the front
line, refuses to sign the agreement on non-resumption of hostilities,
rejects recommendations by the mediators aimed at the establishment
of confidence-building measures," Kocharyan said. The co-chairs of
the OSCE Minsk Group are the shield against Baku's aggression, he said.

The purpose of mediators and our purpose is not to let the armistice
become a military action, he said.
