The head of the Azerbaijani community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan Tural Ganjaliyev commented on the statement of the "head" of the so-called regime organized by Armenia in the occupied Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan, the Community told APA.

According to T. Ganjaliyev, so-called “president” of the illegal regime installed in the occupied Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan by occupant Armenia has stated that the Armenian the community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan are “ready for a reasonable solution to the issue through negotiations” and  “the conflict can be solved in phases”, if the right of the Armenian community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan to self-determination is recognized, and security guarantees are provided for the Armenians of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan is accepted: "As the head of the Azerbaijani community in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan I would like to underline that we strongly support the peaceful resolution to Armenia - Azerbaijan conflict. We actively promote peaceful coexistence and development of both communities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. 

The Armenian community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan may use the principle of self-determination provided for in the 1975 Helsinki Final Act on an equal footing with the Azerbaijani community of the region and within the internationally recognized territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The principle of self-determination can in no way result in the violation of the territorial integrity of countries, the legitimization of the fact of occupation, or the annexation of territories.

Regarding the security guarantees, I must say that the Republic of Azerbaijan and hundreds of thousands of Azerbaijani IDPs, like me, have suffered the most from the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict.

The only security risk is arising from Armenia’s affords to maintain the current status quo, which is characterized by the presence of the Armed Forces of Armenia in the occupied Karabakh region of Azerbaijan and ethnic cleansing of the Azerbaijani population from the occupied Karabakh. The gradual withdrawal of the Armenian Armed Forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan and the return of Azerbaijani IDPs to their native lands will not pose a threat to the Armenian community in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. The security claims of Armenia and the so-called regime are nothing more than an excuse to delay the settlement of the conflict and, consequently, to prolong the occupation of Azerbaijani territories.

Moreover, it should be noted that all three co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group dealing with the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict are permanent members of the UN Security Council and will be responsible for the peace agreement to be reached. This factor alone is a very important point in ensuring security in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Therefore, as the Azerbaijani community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan, we once again call on the Armenian community to vote for our proposal for inter-community dialogue.

Finally, I would like to note that the oligarch A. Harutyunyan, who is known from time to time in criminal matters, shows in his statements how illiterate, random and playful a figure he is in "politics" and "governance". His threat to Azerbaijan is ridiculed and laughed at. In fact, even this so-called "leader" is well aware that the Armenian community in the region has no future outside of Azerbaijan's sovereignty. We fully hope that the Armenian community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan will soon be freed from the "power" of such criminal elements.

As the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Mr. Ilham Aliyev, emphasized, our country will ensure its territorial integrity and restoration work will be carried out on all lands liberated from occupation."
