'The visit of Armenian President Armen Sarkissian to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, including Kalbajar region, is provocation and encourages the aggravation of the situation,' Spokesperson of the Azerbaijani Foreign Affairs Ministry Hikmat Hajiyev said in a press statement.

'This once again proves that the Armenian leadership's speaking of peace or cooperation is nothing but hypocrisy and an attempt to deceive the international community,' he said.

'The Armenian leadership's taking such a provocative and destructive step on the day when the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs visit Yerevan, unfounded claims about the separatist regime's participation in the negotiations openly demonstrate that Armenia is completely uninterested in resolving the conflict through negotiations...'

Hajiyev said the policy pursued by the Armenian leadership threatens regional peace and security: 'We reiterate that Armenia is fully responsible for the current situation.'
