Armenians raised an issue to get off Nagorno Karabakh form Azerbaijan and annex it to Armenia just 2 months later after his dismissal from the position,” said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at the ceremony on the 91st anniversary of Heydar Aliyev and the 10th anniversary of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation, APA reports.

“Particularly, Heydar Aliyev’s absence in the political authority encouraged Armenians, because Heydar Aliyev factor did not allow them to put in such dirty claims. Later, the undeclared war started against Azerbaijan, bloody January tragedy was inflicted. In those tragic moments, Heydar Aliyev again raised his voice of justice again. Addressing at the permanent office of Azerbaijan in Moscow, he condemned Soviet authority’s acts, denounced the top person in Soviet Union. He declared this tragedy to the entire world.

Azerbaijan became a member of international organizations; we started to give tangible answers to the ongoing propaganda campaign against Azerbaijan. We managed to break the information blockade. In those years, the main principles of our foreign policy, which we are committed today, have been formed. ”
