The international community should bring to Armenia's attention that they should withdraw their armed forces from the occupied Azerbaijani territories if they wish to become a part of Europe, the Azerbaijani Foreign Minister, Elmar Mammadyarov, stated at the meeting with the co-rapporteurs of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), Tony Lloyd and Andreas Herkel,Trend reports with reference to the statement by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.

He stressed that Armenia, who is a member of an authoritative organization such as the Council of Europe, has occupied 20% of Azerbaijani territory by breaking all international norms and principles, and as a result, more than one million Azeri people have become refugees and internally displaced persons in their own country. The international community should demand that Armenia bring to an end to its aggressive policy.
