BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 11. In October, Azerbaijan and Armenia formally recognized each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity through joint declarations adopted in Prague and Sochi. This once again demonstrates that the Karabakh conflict is a thing of the past, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the 9th summit of the Organization of Turkic States in Samarkand, Trend reports.
“Although two years have passed since the end of the second Karabakh war, Armenia continues to carry out military provocations on the border. During the last one, in September, the Azerbaijani armed forces had to launch a resolute operation of counter-offensive to repel yet another military provocation from Armenia.
In order to mislead world public opinion, Armenia is trying to groundlessly accuse Azerbaijan of military aggression. We categorically reject these baseless allegations. We fought on our lands, defeated the Armenian army and expelled them from our ancestral lands. Today we are also in our native lands in the direction of the Azerbaijani-Armenian border.
In October, Azerbaijan and Armenia formally recognized each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity through joint declarations adopted in Prague and Sochi. This demonstrates once again that the Karabakh conflict was a thing of the past.
The results of the second Karabakh war create new opportunities for the region. Azerbaijan actively promotes the creation of the Zangazur Corridor and conducts large-scale corridor-related activities on its territory. All countries in the region will benefit from the opening of the Zangazur Corridor,” said the Head of State.
