– Karabakh Conflict Resolution Process – Morgan Caillet –

Following the proposal made by the presidential administration on 13 March to “continue contacts on reintegration and to discuss issues related to the implementation of infrastructure projects in Karabakh” with representatives of the Armenian public of Karabakh, the ” Advisor to the President of Artsakh” David Babayan replied on the same day: “Artsakh has always been in favour of negotiations and peaceful settlement. But negotiations can only take place between equal parties, with the participation of international mediators. […] let us remind Baku that there is no “Armenian community of Nagorno-Karabakh”. The Republic of Artsakh is a state, although it is not recognized. And not being recognized is not at all an obstacle for Azerbaijan, as evidenced by its ties with the so-called “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” and Taiwan”. While the “Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Artsakh” announced the next day: “Such meetings can be held with the mediation of the Russian peacekeeping contingent, at the same place as 1st March 2023, to discuss humanitarian issues , infrastructural and technical, without undue politicization” and on 15 March : “Engagement of the international community in the dialogue between Artsakh and Azerbaijan is the only way to guarantee a comprehensive settlement of the conflict“.
