According to Azerbaijani FM, President Ilham Aliyev once again voiced Azerbaijan’s principal position, noting that what is first to be achieved to settle the conflict by peaceful means is the Armenian Armed Forces’ withdrawal from Azerbaijan’s occupied territories”, Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said in his statement to SIA commenting on Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian’s statement on the results of the Paris meeting.
The minister said if this demand of Azerbaijan, which is openly supported by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs and set forth by the UN Security Council’s particular resolutions, is fulfilled, it will pave the way for security in the region, opening borders and communications, and arranging issues of confidence building measures.
“If there are no Armenian troops in Azerbaijani territories, snipers won’t be needed and military incidents will significantly decrease. We’ll restore peace and help the region develop. As one of the crucial results of the meeting, I would remark Hollande’s call to Armenia and Azerbaijan as the conflict sides about the importance of beginning to work on the project of a great peace treaty. Azerbaijan has always stated it’s ready for it”.
