01 December 2006 [12:59] - TODAY.AZ
Azerbaijan's Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov met with Lord Russell Johnston, the Chairperson of the sub-committee on Nagorno Karabakh of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

Speaking of the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict over Nagorno Karabakh, Elmar Mammadyarov stressed the dispute should be solved only in accordance with international norms and the principle of territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

Minister said Armenia is spreading false information about his country, adding this affects peaceful talks negatively.

Mammadyarov said Armenia's plans to hold a constitutional referendum in occupied Nagorno Karabakh, which he described as an integral part of Azerbaijan, are aimed at damaging the peace process.

The minister said he believes the international community will respond adequately to this "unconstitutional move."

Both Elmar Mammadyarov and Lord Russell Johnston welcomed the declaration of the Riga Summit of NATO supporting territorial integrity and sovereignty of the South Caucasus nations and Moldova. AzerTAg
