Azerbaijani President: “Controversial statements of Armenian leaders are great blow to negotiations process”
- 25 February 2020
“Armenia’s non-constructive and unsatisfactory position is the main obstacle to the solution of the conflict”, said the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in a media statement after the VIII meeting of Azerbaijan-Turkey High-Level Strategic Cooperation Council held today in Baku, APA reports.
The head of the state said the controversial and each-other denial statements of the Armenian leaders are a great blow to negotiations process: “Now they say Nagorno Garabagh belongs to Armenia, and now they say Nagorno Garabagh is an independent state. It turns out that they themselves don’t know the real status of Nagorno Garabagh. If they don’t know we can tell them. Nagorno Garabagh is Azerbaijan. We say this, and the whole world also say this. All countries of the world recognize and support territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. No country recognizes the illegal formation named Nagorno Garabagh. This problem must find its solution in the framework of our country’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, and inviolability of our borders”.
President Ilham Aliyev noted that Turkey is the country providing the greatest support to Azerbaijani at the international scale: “I once again express my gratitude for this support”.
