It is still not too late for Armenia to be reasonable - President of Azerbaijan
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov.9
Nagorno-Karabakh is part of Azerbaijan. It will be part of Azerbaijan as any other region of Azerbaijan. If it will depend again on what will be the Armenian government’s behavior? It is still not too late for them [Armenia] to be reasonable, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in an interview to the BBC News, Trend reports.
“It is still not too late for them to get more on the negotiation table. Because after we take control of other cities and villages, there will be nothing to talk about. So, they are losing time. And if they behave reasonably, we can work on some forms of self-governance. We are not against it. But they should not violate the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. They should be based on the best practice which European countries, like Italy like Sweden and Finland have between themselves. Why there should be something different? And then, of course, the peace will come to the region and I think that, but frankly speaking, with this prime minister of Armenia I don’t think that there is any possibility for peace. There must be a change of government in Armenia, reasonable people must come, those people which are not affiliated with bloodshed and military crimes. And then, I think, by joint actions, we can create a new format of cooperation in the Southern Caucasus among Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Armenia which used to be in Soviet times. We had friendly relations, we lived together,” the head of state said.
