This isn’t an ordinary place on the world map this is a part of Europe for us. We have close relations with Azerbaijan and Armenia; we have commercial interests that will support peaceful solution of the conflict”.

In response to an Armenian journalist -“Why does UK prefer self-determination principles in the issue concerning Kosovo and Folkland, but in other cases it shows quite different approach”, the UK minister said: “I consider that this question doesn’t refer to Nagorno Karabakh conflict. Kosovo issue must be solved due to the UN resolution #1244. Self-determination of the OSCE Minsk group is on of the main principles for the peaceful solution of Nagorno Karabakh conflict. Of course, this principle as well as others must be identified under the control of the OSCE Minsk group’s co-chairs”.
