A senior Azeri diplomat has said latest round of talks in Paris brokered by Europe's main democracy watchdog had failed to make any headway in efforts to solve the Nagorno-Karabakh dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
"The latest round was no different from the previous ones. Any proposals made by Azerbaijan were rejected without giving them any thought and no progress was made," Azeri Deputy Foreign Minister Araz Azimov told reporters Monday.
Azeri and Armenian foreign ministers met on January 28 in Paris in a series of peace talks encouraged by Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, or OSCE, with representatives from the group's co-chairs, Russia, France and the United States.
Azimov said both Azerbaijan and Armenia had general elections scheduled for 2013, adding the Minsk co-chairs "will probably cross-out this year too."
"Armenia is trying to buy time but they are unaware that clock is ticking against them. No one should doubt that we will save the territories under occupation in whatever way we can," Azimov said.
