YEREVAN, NOVEMBER 11, ARMENPRESS. There are several options for a peace treaty between Armenia and Azerbaijan, but Armenia emphasizes that the delimitation process should be completed at least before the peace treaty enters into force, ARMENPRESS reports Prime Minister Niko Pashinyan said in an interview to “Public TV Company”, referring to the question of whether he considers it possible to fulfill his willingness to sign a peace treaty by the end of the year.
“At least we will do everything for it. There are several versions of the peace treaty. For example, there is the option of signing a framework agreement that outlines the general framework of the relations and does not address all possible issues. If it is acceptable for Azerbaijan to move forward with this option, it is possible and we can do it. We will do everything within our power for that,” said Pashinyan.
According to him, there are framework and non-framework versions of the peace treaty. The Prime Minister emphasized that the delimitation process must be completed at least before the peace treaty enters into force.
Azerbaijan has occupied some territories of Armenia. And Pashinyan thinks that it is possible for Armenia and Azerbaijan to sign a peace treaty after which Azerbaijan may continue to present territorial ambitions towards Armenia.
“That’s why we say that there should be a clarification of borders. We have now taken a step in that direction by referring to the content of the Almaty Declaration. Now we have to take the next steps as well,” said Pashinyan.
Armenia also has presented its proposals regarding the scope of the text of the peace treaty. During the meeting held in Washington, the Armenian delegation presented its interpretation, proposals, the Armenian version of the text for discussion and hopes that Azerbaijan will discuss and respond constructively.
