"Ceasefire cannot be achieved unilaterally. It must be a bilateral decision and also it must be implemented on the ground," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev during an interview with Euronews TV on October 7, ONA reports.
"As you know Armenia attacked us on the 27th of September, attacking our military positions and damaging our infrastructure, attacking civilians. So far we have almost 30 civilians killed as a result of Armenian attack, including the ballistic missiles, and the cluster bombs. So, our counter-attack was successful. We managed to liberate part of the occupied territories and our main objective is restoration of territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Armenia must give us the time-table for withdrawal of their troops from the occupied territories and this time-table must be approved by the Minsk group co-chairs, the countries which are mediators. And after that I think the effort must be imposed on achieving the ceasefire," noted the head of the state.
