Baku, Azerbaijan, March 5
Armenia’s leadership must understand that this country will never be completely independent without normalizing the relations with Azerbaijan, spokesperson for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Leyla Abdullayeva said.
Abdullayeva was commenting on Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s statement in the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament, Trend reports on March 5.
“During his speech at the European Parliament, the Armenian prime minister stressed that he is not delivering speech on behalf of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the future of the Nagorno-Karabakh region must be determined by the people living there,” she said. “I would like to ask if it is so, what do young people who are Armenian citizens do in other country’s territories, that is, in the occupied Azerbaijani territories?”
“Why do these young people die? Such unreasonable appeals made by the Armenian prime minister deceive not only the world community, but also the Armenians living worldwide, in Armenia and in Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region," Abdullayeva added.
