The Press Service Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan comented on Armenian Foreign Ministry’s controversial statement, ONA reports citing Azerbaijani MFA.
According to the MFA, the reason for the Armenian Foreign Ministry’s such emotional and at the same time so controversial statement on the latest situation at the line of contact of the armed forces of Armenia and Azerbaijan is understandable. Most probably it’s within the line of Armenian authorities’ reaction to the current domestic situation in the country.
"However, we are reminding that Armenia gave consent to the next meeting at the level of the ministers of foreign affairs. At the same time, the realities on the ground are still the same; the armed forces of Armenia must be withdrawn from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan. There is no other option for the further development of the region never mind who will lead Armenia in the upcoming future.
Armenia should acknowledge that the only cause of human losses, disasters and mutual discord is Armenia's aggressive policy, the occupation of the Azerbaijani territories and the policy of ethnic cleansing of local Azerbaijanis living in these territories. Armenia should not waste time searching for any other fraudulent reasons and should take results-oriented steps in the settlement of the conflict in line with the demands of the international community."
