Armenia has been pursuing an aggressive policy in defiance of the norms and principles of international law, occupying Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territories and carrying out ethnic cleansing in the occupied territories, creating a hotbed of conflict in the region and threatening lasting peace and security for many years.

Provocative leadership of this country is far away from a proper assessment of the situation in the region and ongoing processes around, and provision interests of its nation, like its previous criminal junta regime. Unfortunately, pursuing an independent policy on the basis of national interests and perceive the benefit of peace, security, and welfare in the region have not been granted to Armenia yet.

Irresponsible and provocative behavior of Armenian leadership aggravates tension in the region and thus, destroys the opportunity of resolution of the conflict, caused by Armenia itself, by negotiations. 

Attempts by the Armenian Prime Minister to change the format of the negotiation process, making unfounded remarks about the talks, nonsensical statements made in August 2019, the attack of the Armenian armed forces on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border on July 12-16, 2020, on August 23.

Abdullayeva.
