Guliev Refuses Economic Cooperation With Armenia

BAKU (Armenpress)–Azerbaijan’s Foreign Affairs Minister Vilayat Guliev announced that Azerbaijan will not develop economic cooperation with Armenia.

(Azerbaijan was under pressure from foreign countries to develop such a cooperation in an attempt to ease tensions between the neighboring nations.)

According to RFE/RL–citing his recent meeting with the leaders of the European Union in Luxembourg–Guliev said that the European countries know "who occupied the territories and what country blocked economic aide to the Autonomous Republic of Nakhijevan."

"Economic cooperation is impossible–until a resolution to the Karabakh conflict is achieved," Guliev said–adding that within the framework of the OSCE foreign ministers’ meeting–to be held December 3-4–no radical changes to the proposed resolutions for the Karabakh conflict are expected.
