Ilham Aliyev: Hope Franceâ€™s efforts to contribute to fair settlement of Karabakh conflict
- 08 May 2017
Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said he hopes France’s efforts will contribute to a fair settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
“I attach particular importance to France’s efforts and hope that they will finally contribute to a fair settlement of the conflict. Azerbaijan's stance is that the conflict must be solved only in compliance with the norms of international law and within Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity,” President Aliyev told France’s President-elect Emmanuel Macron in his congratulatory letter.
The Azerbaijani president pointed in his letter to the UN Security Council’s four conflict-related resolutions, as well as the relevant decisions and resolutions of the UN General Assembly, OSCE, NATO, European Parliament, PACE, Non-Aligned Movement, Organization of Islamic Cooperation and other international organizations.
“Armenia ignores all of the resolutions and decisions regarding the conflict. France, like the other OSCE Minsk Group co-chairing countries, considers the status quo unacceptable,” President Aliyev noted.
