    Karabakh settlement discussion (9)

    A compromise on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement is possible.

    BAKU (Sputnik) — A reasonable compromise on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement is possible, while the region could become an autonomous republic, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev told Sputnik.

    "A reasonable compromise is possible — ensuring security of the people of Nagorno Karabakh, their livelihoods, local government, the implementation of various investment projects on the part of Azerbaijan and peaceful interaction between the two nations on the condition of liberation of territories outside Nagorno-Karabakh autonomous region, this is how wee see the settlement of the conflict," Aliyev said.

    According to Aliyev, there can be no compromise on the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, as Baku would "never agree" to the Nagorno-Karabakh independence.

    "But there can be compromise on the issues of local self-government… in the future, if we manage to agree, it [Karabakh] may become an autonomous republic," Aliyev said.
