BAKU, Azerbaijan, Feb. 14
There must be a peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said after viewing the restoration work carried out by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation at Aghdam Juma Mosque, Trend reports.
"For 30 years, all our cities, villages, mosques and cemeteries had been deliberately destroyed by the Armenians. Imaret was destroyed and insulted by the Armenians. Some are talking about future reconciliation now. Of course, there must be a peace agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan. This peace agreement must be signed on the basis of mutual recognition of the territorial integrity of the countries, on the basis of the norms and principles of international law. I have also said that. But the Azerbaijani people must never forget this atrocity. No-one should ever forget this savagery," Azerbaijani president said.
"I am confident that the work we are doing today, including the work in the field of army building, will further strengthen Azerbaijan and serve as a good response to the revanchist forces in Armenia. We are on our own land. We have returned to this land by shedding blood and giving martyrs. We are standing firm in this land and will live on it forever. Karabakh is Azerbaijan!" the head of state said.
