Foreign Ministry: “The Armenian and Azerbaijani community of Nagorno Karabakh can determine their own destiny after the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan”

Baku: The head of the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry commented on Armenian President’s speech at “Euronest”

“We would like to remind the leadership of Armenia, which states that there is no any alternative to self-determination of peoples, based on European and world values ​​that these values, which it says, without going into their essence, does not provide for the bloody ethnic cleansing, occupation and aggression”, – head of the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev said, commenting on Armenian President Serj Sargsyan’s speech, delivered at the last plenary session in Yerevan “Euronest”.

Hajiyev noted that after the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, Armenian and Azerbaijani communities of Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan can determine their own destiny within the borders of Azerbaijan, which is also supported by the OSCE Minsk Group: “The only way to a comprehensive settlement of the conflict is only this. To suggest any other solution for this conflict is dream and far from objective reality.”

According to the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it would be better if Armenian leadership, which speaks about “peace” and interprets the OSCE MG activity in its own way, clarify why Armenia although the insistence of the Minsk Group, evade from the start of work on the development of a large peace agreement.

“The Armenian side, at last, has to reckon with the reality that the representation of the status quo resulting from the occupation and aggression as the solution of the conflict based on the principle of “fait accompli”, can never be accepted by the international community”, – said Hajiyev.
