Assistant to President of Azerbaijan Republic – Head of Foreign policy issues department of Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Republic Hikmet Hajiyev has commented on the claim of the Armenian side regarding the non-acceptance by the official Baku of the proposal about arrangement of meeting between the first ladies of Azerbaijan and Armenia, ONA reports citing the statement to journalists of the Presidential aide.
He said the Armenian side should take the most necessary and inevitable steps regarding the solution of Nagorno Garabagh conflict instead of voicing various absurd ideas.
H. Hajiyev said such steps include withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan: “The solution of the conflict shouldn’t be an object of populism. Armenia is an occupant country, and there are over 1 million Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced people. Therefore , if we wish to achieve progress in the solution of Nagorno Garabagh conflict, the factor which makes up the fundamental basis of the conflict i.e. the occupation factor should be eliminated."
