June 16, Fineko/abc.az. The Minsk Group, which received a mandate from the OSCE, has not achieved any results in 28 years. Therefore, after Azerbaijan has settled the Karabakh conflict, the Minsk Group is no longer needed.

ABC.AZ reports that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said this during his speech at the opening of the IX Global Baku Forum on the topic "Threats to the global world order". 
The head of state noted that, in particular, "after the Russian-Ukrainian war, everyone understands that it is impossible to hold a meeting with the participation of all three co-chairs of the Minsk Group."

"We’ve already been informed that the institute of the Minsk Group co-chairs will no longer function. It's time for them to retire. Thus, I want to express our position that any speculation in Armenia about the Minsk Group or in some other country causes only irritation in Azerbaijan. We’ve settled the conflict. The Madrid Principles developed by the Minsk Group have been resolved. Now we need to think about ways to normalize relations with Armenia and sign a peace treaty," the Azerbaijani president stressed.
