Azerbaijan’s MFA: We have always stood out for conducting of substantive negotiations on settlement of conflict

“The President of the Azerbaijan Republic Mr. Ilham Aliyev answering the questions of the local mass media has once again denounced clearly and with specific facts the occupational policy of Armenia where the Nazi ideology rules, the false democracy of this country that has occupied the internationally recognized territories of the neighbor state and has violated the fundamental rights of over one million people, and the dictatorship regime established by the present government”, said Leyla Abdullayeva, head of the Press service department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Azerbaijan Republic, ONA reports.

“Armenia’s MFA accuses Azerbaijan of presenting Armenia under the image of the “useful enemy”. In this regard, it should be first noted that Armenia has already gained for itself the image of the enemy a long time ago by keeping the Azerbaijani lands under military occupation for about 30 years and by its aggressive policy condemned by the whole world. Besides, both the failed domestic policy and the foreign policy based on the continuation of military occupation of the present leaders of Armenia openly demonstrate that those leaders act from the hostile position against the present and the future of just their own people.

Opposing the initiative of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan to convene a special session of the UN General Assembly on combating the global pandemic, the current leadership of Armenia has shown its true face. Opposing the initiative serving the interests of the whole world because of the fact that it was put forward by Azerbaijan, Armenia, therefore, casts serious doubt on the call to prepare the populations for peace.

As for the attempts to accuse Azerbaijan of hostile statements, the aggressor Armenia, aggravating the situation with its illegal and provocative actions, has always received and will continue to receive a worthy response from the leadership of Azerbaijan.

Speaking about the interests of the peoples of Azerbaijan and Armenia, the Armenian leadership should finally understand that ensuring sustainable peace, security and prosperity in the region in the interests of both peoples is possible only after the withdrawal of the occupying forces of Armenia from the occupied territories in Nagorno-Karabakh and the adjacent regions of Azerbaijan in accordance with requirements of UN Security Council resolutions and the return of internally displaced persons to their homes, ”the spokeswoman for the Foreign Ministry emphasized.

She noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan has always advocated negotiations on the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on the merits and for the speedy resolution of the conflict required the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group to demonstrate a decisive position that Armenia is the aggressor and subjected to aggression - Azerbaijan: "Azerbaijan’s position on this issue is unchanged and is of a fundamental nature."
