BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 31. The five principles we have initiated reflect the norms of international law and good international conduct, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said receiving a delegation led by Minister for Foreign Affairs of Poland, OSCE Chairman-in-Office Zbigniew Rau, Trend reports.
"The conflict has already been resolved. Azerbaijan resolved it itself, and now is the time to normalize relations between Azerbaijan and Armenia. We are receiving certain messages from Armenian officials. As I was recently informed that one of these messages is that they consider our proposal acceptable. This is very good news, and I hope that this issue will be clarified at the meeting in Brussels," Azerbaijani president said.
"The five principles we have initiated reflect the norms of international law and good international conduct. We are not inventing a bicycle here, so to speak. All these principles are the fundamental principles of interstate relations between any countries. Reciprocal recognition of territorial integrity and inviolability of international borders, and then the delimitation of borders – I think that peace will come to the Caucasus on this basis. We want it. We are seeing the potential for active cooperation amongst the three countries of the South Caucasus, and I think that this will be important not only for these countries but also for the wider region. Of course, all these issues need to be addressed very carefully and in a timely manner. I am very glad to have the opportunity to discuss these and other important issues with you," the head of state said.
