President Ilham Aliyev: “We won’t allow the establishment of the second Armenian state in the territory of Azerbaijan”

Baku: “Only one declaration covers the outlines of our political ties, and this is a very important document” said President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at the joint press conference with his French counterpart Francois Hollande, APA reports. The Head of State said that the consultations strengthen political ties between the two countries: “Azerbaijan cooperated with France within the UN Security Council over the past two years. We share the same positions on a number of issues.”

President Ilham Aliyev said that France is a co-chairing country of the OSCE Minsk Group and recalled that UN Security Council adopted 4 resolutions on the withdrawal of the Armenian forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan: “The Council of Europe and other international organizations also adopted the documents, but the occupation continues. The outcomes of the two visits of the OSCE fact-finding mission show that the settlements and monuments were destroyed in those territories. We respect the principle of self-determination, but the Armenians have once had it. We won’t allow the establishment of the second Armenian state in the territory of Azerbaijan. I believe that France and the other co-chairing countries of the OSCE Minsk Group will continue their efforts to resolve the conflict, it will be resolved soon and people will return to their lands.”

French President Francois Hollande noted that some issues are still impeding the resolution of the conflict: “My visits to Azerbaijan and Armenia are efforts towards the resolution of this conflict. France has friendly relations with Azerbaijan and Armenia, we can’t choose between them. We offered to reconsider the resolution of the conflict at the meeting of the Azerbaijani and Armenian Presidents. France has always initiated the resolution of the conflict. We are also considering the issue of Ukraine. We will make the final decision on the Ukraine crisis in the coming days.”
