“Unfortunately, high-ranking officials in Armenia today are still talking about the OSCE Minsk Group. I think that it is pointless, there is no use. The Minsk Group has been effectively paralyzed since 2019.” President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev voiced this opinion about the organization, speaking at the 5th Congress of the World Azerbaijanis.
The head of state stressed that the Minsk Group, authorized to resolve the issue since 1992, had failed to achieve any results.
“Looking back at the history of this group, its actions and proposals, we can see once again that it was established not to resolve the issue, but to perpetuate the occupation of the Azerbaijani lands. The influence of Armenian lobby groups in the co-chair countries of the Minsk Group is great. This is exactly why there have been no results for 28 years,” Ilham Aliyev said.
