If Armenia does not liberate the occupied Azerbaijani territories, then the Azerbaijani people and state has enough power, ability and will to liberate its land and restore historical justice, Ruling New Azerbaijan Party deputy chairman and executive secretary Ali Ahmedov told journalists on Thursday.

"Armenia has committed aggression against Azerbaijan and occupied 20 per cent of our lands. This occupation has lasted 20 years. The UN Security Council and other international organisations have taken a decision on this issue. All this means is that no matter what statements the Armenian president makes, the world community and international law demand that Armenia liberates Azerbaijani lands," Ahmedov said.

He said nobody asked Armenia and its government to occupy Azerbaijani territories by shedding blood.

"This bloodshed, such injustice, has been committed not only against Azerbaijan. They acted unfairly also in respect of their people. They have shed the blood of their own citizens to occupy the territory of another country. It is their own business how they respond to the parents of their soldiers whose blood has been shed," Ahmedov said.
