Tural Ganjaliyev: "Armenian army not “security guarantor” for Armenian community of Nagorno Garabagh"
- 04 May 2020
In recent days, the topic actively discussed in political circles of the occupant Armenia is the statement of the minister of Foreign affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov regarding the current situation in the area of the phased solution of Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict voiced by him during the online discussions organized by the Gorchakov Fund, said the elected representative of the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno Garabagh region of the Azerbaijan Republic, APA reports.
He noted that in this regard the completely groundless statements are voiced one after another by Armenia’s leadership and the “representatives” of the illegal regime in Azerbaijan’s occupied Garabagh region: “I as the representative of Nagorno Garabagh region of the Azerbaijan Republic elected on legal grounds declare that such statements are completely meaningless and serve for goals of concealing the occupation fact. I would like to note that in any case, the conflict will be solved in accordance with clause 11 of Constitution of the Azerbaijan Republic. In that clause clearly says that the territory of the Azerbaijan Republic unitary, inviolable and indivisible.
Armenia and its helpers on the occupied Azerbaijani territories can make many statements, but the opinion of the international community represents exclusive significance for solution of Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, and the world community has taken a fair and strict attitude against Armenia’s occupational policy. This attitude has once again found its confirmation in both the UN Security Council resolutions, multiple decisions of international organizations, and the world community’s strict reaction to the so-called “elections” organized by Armenia on Azerbaijan’s occupied territories only a short time ago. Armenia is left alone on the international arena due to its occupation of the Azerbaijani territories.
I would like to remind a proverb of the wise Azerbaijani people: A man drowning in water usually catches at a straw! It seems that Armenia’s leadership and its helpers on the occupied territories try to calm down the domestic audience by groundless statements of this kind. But Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territorial integrity, withdrawal of Armenia’s troops from the occupied territories and return of internally displaced people to their native lands will be key items of any solution of the conflict.
The Armenian army is not and can’t be a “security guarantor” for the Armenian community of Azerbaijan’s Nagorno Garabagh region. The Armenian community of Azerbaijan’s Nagorno Garabagh region understands this truth very well, and if it is interested in achieving peace in the region, then it should demand together with us the withdrawal of the Armenian troops from Azerbaijan’s occupied territories.
So far, despite Azerbaijan’s all military and political capabilities, its efforts aimed at peaceful solution of the conflict are just the indicator of the value attached by the Azerbaijan Republic to human life. Azerbaijan’s peaceful conduct is also an indicator of respect for the peace-making mission implemented by OSCE Minsk Group.
As the Azerbaijani community of Nagorno Garabagh region of the Azerbaijan Republic, we are confident that the conflict will be solved in the nearest future and our violated rights will be completely restored. Availing from the exclusive benefits granted by the citizenship of the Azerbaijan Republic, we will peacefully coexist with the Armenian community of our Nagorno Garabagh region".
