Azerbaijan to support Palestine at UN
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 24 / Trend , M.Aliyev /
Azerbaijan will support Palestine at the UN General Assembly, Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister Araz Azimov said at a conference marking the 20th anniversary of Azerbaijan's state independence.
"Azerbaijan is a member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Generally, Azerbaijan is a state representing the Islamic world. We should surely support Palestine and Azerbaijan has always supported Palestine at the UN General Assembly," Azimov said.
Azimov underscored that Azerbaijan also respects principles of international law.
"Palestine's territory was occupied and we cannot turn blind eye to this. Moreover, we have told Israel, with which we have cooperation and partnership relations, about this," he said.
Azimov said a certain way-out should be found in this regard. A possibility of finding such a way-out is observed, given the recent statements by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Head of the Palestinian National Authority Mahmoud Abbas, he said.
