"We should focus on reality. The reality is that a unique opportunity emerged to normalize relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia since gaining independence. Why do I say it for the first time? Because there is no fact of occupation now," said Azerbaijan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeyhun Bayramov in an interview with TRT World, APA reports.
Mr. Bayramov reminded that in accordance with four UN resolutions, Azerbaijan has restored its territorial integrity: "There are about 30 years of hostility, occupation, losses, severe consequences of the war between us. But we believe that we must look to the future. You know, it's not easy for us, because the memory, everything that happens is new. However, the President of Azerbaijan stressed the need to normalize relations. Azerbaijan is ready to work with Armenia for a peace agreement. We offer it. We expect political will and real steps from Armenia at this level as well."
