Azerbaijani President Aliyev: “Karabakh crisis is over”

AA / Baku

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stressed that the Karabakh crisis is completely over and that his country implemented the UN Security Council resolutions regarding this crisis when he saw the failure of international bodies to resolve it.

Statements made in a speech he delivered on Thursday during his participation in the Eighth Baku International Forum.

Aliyev said: “The resolutions of the UN Security Council have remained like ink on paper for 27 years, and if we had not acted to implement these resolutions, they would have remained so for a long time to come. 27 years old”.

The Azerbaijani President explained that his country has used its right resulting from international resolutions and freed its occupied lands in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

He noted that international organizations and institutions have remained silent on the Armenian government’s transgressions in the Nagorno-Karabakh region before its release by the Azerbaijani army.

He also claimed that Armenian forces destroyed and looted areas belonging to Azerbaijan during the occupation period.

On September 27, 2020, the Azerbaijani army launched an operation to liberate its occupied lands in the Karabakh region, after an attack by the Armenian army on areas populated by civilians.

After fierce fighting that lasted 44 days, Russia announced on November 10, 2020 that Azerbaijan and Armenia had reached a ceasefire agreement, providing for Baku to regain control of the provinces occupied by Armenia. .
