According to Hraparak, Washington wants the sides to approve a preliminary version by the end of May. It was recently brought to Yerevan (and then to Baku) by US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Erika Olson as part of her visit.
The publication points out that the document “does not meet the interests” of Armenia and the Karabakh separatists and “the proposals are so disadvantageous that even with all their defeatist position, the Armenian authorities do not accept them.”
Earlier, at the press conference following the meeting with Catherine Colonna, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs of France, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov said Armenia had returned to the negotiations with Baku as a result of the efforts of the United States and thanked Washington for that.
“As a result of the efforts of the United States, Armenia has returned to the negotiation process. We will engage in this process. We will do our best to advance the peace process,” he said.
Last week, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that if it comes to signing a treaty with Baku, he sees the government’s function as communicating to citizens the full extent of the compromise solutions, which in part will be painful.
