Swiss Ambassador to Armenia Lukas Gasser: Switzerland will try to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict without questioning the established formats such as the OSCE Minsk process

President of the European Movement Azerbaijan (EMA) Ramin Hajili urges Armenia to withdraw its troops from "the occupied territories". He assures that if Armenia withdraws its troops from "these 6 regions", official Baku will make very big concessions.
Hajili fails to answer ArmInfo's question about the concessions to be made by Azerbaijan, as well as the question why Armenia, the winner in the Karabakh war, should make any concessions. "In this particular case, someone should make concessions. Azeri people want no war and want the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to be settled peacefully", he says.
In the meantime, despite the prospect to be declared persona non grata in Azerbaijan, Hajili has expressed a desire to visit Karabakh. "Despite that threat, I would like to visit Nagorno-Karabakh. I may also be blacklisted for I have visited Armenia, but if we are afraid of such actions, the problem will not move off the dead center", says Hajili.
Hajili says that he was born in Nagorno-Karabakh and lived there till he became 10 years old.
To note, EMA President Ramin Hajili and EMA Expert on Peace Building Hamida Giyasbeyli have visited Yerevan within the framework of the European Movement International's project on improvement of civic initiatives in the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict.
