Thus, the think tanks of different countries, which form an opinion about the political landscape of the world, In the presence of a large number of open-minded people and the international community, the President of Azerbaijan, as always, once again demonstrated his leadership and intellectual potential. The situation has changed since the war. Despite the ceasefire, many questions remain about the conflict. It is very important that the leading experts come together and hear the answers from the first person about the new reality and further development and cooperation, what are the clear and concrete messages, desires and real steps and expectations of Azerbaijan on this issue.
The political scientist said: “The answers given at the conference once again showed how resolute Azerbaijan is in establishing peace. At the same time, it is important for the participants to be taken to Agdam before the conference and to be shown the destroyed areas in order to have a clear understanding of the goals and objectives of the other side during and after the war. The whole world must explain to Armenia that it accepts the territorial integrity and borders of Azerbaijan. If Armenia understands this reality, it will win, if it claims otherwise, it will continue to lose.

We saw the same situation at this conference. If there was a small question in the brain about the position of Azerbaijan after the war, now all those dark moments have been clarified. The head of state’s commentary on any issue with restraint, diplomatic skills and facts has already formed a very positive image of Azerbaijan in the world.

Both the political will of the Azerbaijani leader as a politician and all the positive personal qualities as a person form a very positive image of the Azerbaijani people in the world.
Azerbaijan itself is the creator of its own destiny. President Ilham Aliyev, who pursues an independent policy, holding the torch of the national interests of the Azerbaijani people in his hands and raising his voice in the world with each passing day, further develops the political line of national leader Heydar Aliyev.
As noted, the interest in the event was from within the country and abroad. Our people are convinced that President Ilham Aliyev, who raised Azerbaijan to the level of a reliable partner of the world and recognized it as a state with an independent foreign policy, once again drew attention to Azerbaijan’s position based on national interests. The positive attitude towards Azerbaijan was once again evident. In this regard, the people again showed solidarity on social networks. The world has witnessed how much Azerbaijan is united, more and more united around its leader. This unity is unshakable. The people of Azerbaijan are convinced that President Ilham Aliyev is the undisputed leader of our people, the guardian of its national interests.
Azerbaijan has created a new reality, which Armenia must accept. Azerbaijan is ready for peace. In fact, when the President of Azerbaijan said “Armenia must clarify its status,” the messages he conveyed were, on the one hand, to the current revanchist circles in Armenia, and, on the other hand, to those who support them. Yes, the head of state again conveyed the necessary messages to Armenia and the relevant circles with his offensive diplomacy. Azerbaijan is no longer the previous Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is a country that ensures its territorial integrity, creates a new reality in the region and forces everyone to agree, reconcile and reckon with it. President Ilham Aliyev also demonstrated determination on the Iskander-M missiles. This shows once again that Azerbaijan, under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev, does not deviate from its principles. Drawing attention to history, the President of Azerbaijan reminded once again that Armenia should not forget by whose hands, in whose historical lands, for what purpose. All these are historical facts. It is enough to look at the map of the early twentieth century.

The participation of countries such as Turkey, Italy and the United Kingdom in this work once again showed that under the leadership of President Ilham Aliyev, Azerbaijan has established cooperation in the region and achieved another international success.
The greatness of our victory is also expressed in a very concrete way by the influential people of the world. Thus, the views of Svante Cornell, Director of the Swedish Institute for Security and Development Policy, are quite correct and clear in this regard: “Azerbaijan has proved that it is not the object of real or imagined geopolitical games between great powers, but a force with its own rights.”
