The permission for a representative of the illegal separatist regime established in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan to enter Russia undermines efforts to advance the negotiation process and contradicts the mediation obligations of the Russian Federation as co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group.

Thus the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry commented on the information about the visit to Moscow of the 'head' of the separatist regime created in Nagorno-Karabakh.

'This step of the Russian side does not correspond to the high level of current relations between Azerbaijan and Russia and contradicts the legal framework of bilateral relations, in particular the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Security between the Russian Federation and the Azerbaijan Republic, which indicates that 'the parties undertake not to support the separatist movements, as well as prohibit and suppress the activities of individuals, aimed against state sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the other party.'

Such voyages of the 'head' of the illegal regime to the countries co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group can lead to an unpredictable development of the situation around the conflict. In this case, the entire responsibility will be on the Armenian side,' the Foreign Ministry said.
