President Ilham Aliyev: Unresolved Nagorno-Karabakh conflict won`t bring glory to UN Security Council

Baku, October 8, AZERTAC

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has said the unresolved Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict won`t bring glory to UN Security Council. Saying Azerbaijan achieved a great military victory this April, President Aliyev stressed that the April battle was a glorious page of Azerbaijani history. The head of state noted that after the April battle negotiators were somehow more active, holding meetings in May and June.”

“The problem remains unresolved not only because of Armenia,” said the head of state. “Armenia has big patrons, some of them give money, some weapons, some set up lobbies, some conduct propaganda. This is the reason why the problem is unresolved. That is why this issue must be clarified.”

“We are aware that we have faced double standards, and the fact that this problem remains unresolved won’t bring any glory to the UN Security Council because the United Nations adopted four resolutions. These resolutions have not been implemented for more than 20 years. They should at least respect their own decisions. We already see how Armenia violates the international law. We should have economic, political and military power, and we do have it. We just want a peaceful solution. We pursue a consistent policy to this end,” said President Ilham Aliyev.
