Hajiyev said that the fundamental cause of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is connected with the aggressive policy pursued by Armenia against Azerbaijan using force.
He stressed that Armenia carried out a bloody ethnic cleansing against Azerbaijanis in the occupied territories and over a million Azerbaijanis are still forced to live as refugees and IDPs.
