Armenia becomes a political, economic, energy and transportation dead-end â€“ Azerbaijani president
Armenia has become a political, economic, energy and transportation dead-end, said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.
He made the remarks addressing the 6th congress of the New Azerbaijan Party on Feb. 8, APA reports.
The head of state noted that all respected international organizations support Azerbaijan’s stance on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“The UN, OSCE, Council of Europe, European Parliament, Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Non-Aligned Movement – all these leading organizations have adopted resolutions and decisions supporting our position on the conflict,” he said.
President Aliyev reiterated that the entire world recognizes Nagorno-Karabakh as Azerbaijan’s integral part.
“No countries recognize the illegal regime created in the occupied territories, and I’m sure that they will never recognize it. Historical facts also strengthen our position, because Nagorno-Karabakh is our native, historical land,” the president said. “Decisions and resolutions of international organizations strengthen both political and legal bases. Our position on the conflict settlement prevails, especially in the present circumstances.”
He stressed that separatism tendencies are increasing in different parts of the world, in particular in Europe.
“Europe also sees how dangerous separatism is. Azerbaijan has faced aggressive separatism. Therefore, the processes related to the ongoing conflicts around the world have further strengthened our position,” the president said.
“It is no coincidence that the resolution adopted at the Eastern Partnership Summit in November last year unequivocally supported the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of the Eastern Partnership member states. I can say that the resolution of this format was adopted for the first time. It was another blow to Armenia, their next defeat, and our next victory. In fact, it was another triumph of justice. We just have to pursue our own policy, and we will do it. We must and will continue to exert more pressure on Armenia. We need to bring our truth to the world community,” he added.
President Aliyev reiterated that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be resolved within Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity on the basis of UN Security Council resolutions.
“There is no other way. We will never allow a second Armenian state to be created in our lands. Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity is not and will never be a matter of discussion. We just have to intensify our efforts, and we are doing it. I’m confidence that this issue will fairly resolved in accordance with international law, and our country’s territorial integrity will be restored,” he said.
The head of state stressed that now everyone sees that Armenia has become a hostage and a victim of its aggressive policy.
"We could isolate them from all international projects, all energy and transport lines bypass them, and we did it. Despite the fact that it was not an easy issue. Unfortunately, the pro-Armenian forces in the world, the Armenian lobby and some politicians, who sold for Armenian money, are always trying to include Armenia in the projects that we have initiated. We have always objected to this very seriously, and the projects implemented on our initiative completely left Armenia aside. The Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, Baku-Tbilisi- Erzurum, the Southern Gas Corridor projects and Baku-Tbilisi-Kars bypassed them," he said.
President Aliyev said that the North-South transport corridor will also pass bypass them thanks to Azerbaijan's policy.
"We do not hide this. Although some people are trying to accuse us of keeping them in isolation. Yes, we are keeping and will keep them in isolation until our lands are liberated from the occupation. This policy gives its results," the President stressed.
President Aliyev emphasized that no one now invests in Armenia.
"First of all, because the criminal, corrupt and bloodthirsty regime that seized the power in Armenia does not allow investing, all previously invested and donated money has been stolen by the regime. On the other hand, the market restrictions and decreasing market does not allow a serious investor to come there and export opportunities are also very limited. Because, there should be ways for export, even though there are ways, it does not create a full investment opportunity. Of course, we have done so much and this policy will be continued. According to their latest statistics, last year, more than 40,000 people have permanently left the country, and this tendency goes on yearly. As a result of our efforts, Armenia has become political, economic, energy and transportation dead-end, and of course, its future growth is dark," President Aliyev said.
