"The Armenian government, refering to the history, should not forget that the Armenians have no ties with the South Caucasus from the archaeological, ethnographic and anthropological point of view." SIA
reports that spokesman of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmat Hajiyev stated commenting on Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s speech at the forum of the graduates of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MSIIR) held in Yerevan.
According to him,it would be better to refresh the memory of the Armenian government, distorting the essence of 4 resolutions of the UN Security Council in its speech, which supports the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Azerbaijan, confirmed that Nagorno Karabakh is an inseparable part of Azerbaijan. It also expressed a requirement for the unconditional and complete withdrawal of occupying forces from Azerbaijani territory. The resolution also noted the inadmissibility of violation of the internationally recognized borders of states and the forcible seizure of territories. In accordance with the document dated 23 March 1995 concerning the mandate of the OSCE Minsk Group, the resolutions should form the basis of MG activities."
Use of force and threatening with use of force has become a means of political speculation for Armenia. The country has used [military] force against Azerbaijan, invading 20 percent of the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan. It’s Armenia, the occupying state, that is supposed to act on the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs’ calls like avoidance from use of force and threatening with use of force. As a state continuing use of force and threatening with use of force – whereas it’s supposed to eliminate the consequences of the invasion and aggression and pull out its troops from the occupied Azerbaijani territories – the whole responsibility is upon Armenia.
“The Armenians resettled to the South Caucasus after the collapse of the Russian Empire created something resembling a state on the historical Azerbaijani lands,” stressed the Ministry's spokesman.
