We are offered to make concession to Armenia, unilateral concession, while nothing being offered in return - President Aliyev
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 21
We are offered to make a concession to Armenia, a unilateral concession, while nothing is being offered in return, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with the Russian TASS news agency, Trend reports.
“We are offered to make a concession to Armenia, a unilateral concession, while nothing is being offered in return. This is not fair. I believe that this is a wrong approach in relation to Azerbaijan. Let the Armenian side say, let the prime minister of Armenia, who loves to talk a lot and what he says often costs his country dearly, say: yes, there will be de-occupation, there will be withdrawal. I also suggested that they should provide a timetable for the withdrawal from the occupied territories. But then, realizing that it was technically impossible to do this within the framework of one-day negotiations in Moscow, we moved away from this position. Nevertheless, we did not hear the Armenian side say that it was ready to withdraw troops from the occupied territories. As soon as this happens, the issue of the so-called observers can be considered,” the head of state said.
