The Azerbaijani President found it impossible talks with the unrecognized NKR
Negotiations between Baku and the unrecognised Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is impossible, said President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, according to the head of the Republic, "it is absolutely unacceptable."
"...Recently I was informed that the Prime Minister of Armenia, Azerbaijan put seven conditions. I think any sane person can clearly see that neither one of these conditions is not acceptable. One of these conditions is the fact that Azerbaijan was negotiating with the so-called "Nagorno Karabakh Republic". It's impossible. We have stated this many times. Because there is no "Nagorno Karabakh Republic". No one recognizes a "Republic". If Armenia has the courage, let it recognize the "Nagorno Karabakh Republic", - said Aliyev, speaking at a meeting with young people in Balakan district in the North-West of the country, his words are quoted by the press service.
According to the President of Azerbaijan, "imposing unacceptable conditions, Armenia is actually destroys the negotiation process and wants to change the format of negotiations."
"Because the negotiations between Azerbaijan and Armenia. This open position of the Minsk group and its co-chairs," - said the head of the Republic.
The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh began in February 1988 when Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous region announced its secession from the Azerbaijan SSR.

Since 1992 negotiations on peaceful settlement of the conflict within the OSCE Minsk group, headed by three co - chairs-Russia, USA and France.
