Aliyev turns Karabakh situation upside down, Armenia says

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev's statements can be viewed as attempts to turn the reality upside down and distort the Nagorno Karabakh negotiation process, a spokesperson for Armenian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday, October 18.

In an interview with Russian news agency RIA Novosti, Aliyev said Karabakh can become an autonomous region within Azerbaijan.

"The OSCE Minsk Group Co-chairs have on numerous occasions declared that the status of Nagorno Karabakh will be determined by its people's free expression of will," spokesman Tigran Balayan said.

"Azerbaijan had better not indulge in wishful thinking and refrain from lying to its own people. A week ago Aliyev confessed the real essence of negotiations, stating that Baku is urged to recognize Karabakh's independence."
