BAKU, Azerbaijan, March 14. We proved in the 44-day Patriotic War that Karabakh is Azerbaijan, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in a press conference with Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz in Berlin, Trend reports.
"I must also state that, unfortunately, the leadership of Armenia, which used to see Karabakh as Armenia, missed its chance for peace. In 2019, the present-day prime minister of Armenia said that "Karabakh is Armenia, full stop". This actually dealt the biggest blow to the peace talks. During the 44-day Patriotic War, we proved that Karabakh is Azerbaijan, exclamation mark! We put this exclamation mark in Shusha on November 8, 2020.
Now is the time for peace. We have proposed peace to Armenia, we have proposed a peace treaty based on five principles. I do hope that Armenia doesn’t miss this chance and an era of peace and cooperation finally begins in the South Caucasus," President Ilham Aliyev said.
