PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenia should not expect positive developments from Madrid principles on the Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement and the OSCE Minsk Group’s activity, according to Ashot Manucharyan, the former member of Karabakh committee.
“In 1992, Armenia entered the negotiations process of the OSCE MG, which was only within the interests of U.S., and was not advantageous either for Armenia, Artsakh or even Azerbaijan,” Manucharyan told a press conference in Yerevan.
“Armenia was an active negotiator before, but now it merely reacts to the actions of world powers, becoming a “ground for other players.” The country is on the way to catastrophe unless it changes its position in talks,” he said.
Manucharyan also commented on the forthcoming trilateral presidential meeting in Kazan, Russia, saying that no real progress is expected. He underlined the role of Iran in Karabakh process, which, according to him, created new factors enabling to maintain the status quo in the region.
