"Are Alsace and Lataringe important to you? Is Bavaria important to you? Or Rhine-Westphalia? This is our land, our internationally recognized territory," said the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in an interview with the German ARD television channel on October 28 while answering the question on "Why is Karabakh so important for Azerbaijan?" Are there resources, or is it a symbol?”, ONA reports.
The President of Azerbaijan said that this was not a matter of resources: "The main resources are here in Baku. This is a matter of justice, this is a matter of national pride, and this is a matter of international law. International law and the entire international community recognize Nagorno-Karabakh as an integral part of Azerbaijan. We are restoring justice, and we are implementing the UN Security Council resolutions that have remained on paper for 27 years."
