Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev talked about the Nagorno-Karabakh status after defining borders with Armenia.
“I have already expressed my opinion on the Minsk Group, I do not consider it necessary to repeat it again,” he said.
“First, the whole world, leading countries and leading international organizations have accepted the new realities. This was very important, as it could have been otherwise. This is our very big political success.
Secondly, leading international organizations are already taking our agenda as a basis. I said that we should define the borders with Armenia. Armenia refused this for a year and a half.”
“And what happened in the end? On May 24, the first meeting of the commissions took place on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border. This is of great importance.
We will define the boundaries, which is very important. Since these borders were also occupied by Armenians. On the other hand, this will automatically officially put an end to the territorial claims against Azerbaijan by the revanchist, fascist forces in Armenia,” he claimed.
“Because if we define the borders, then what status of “Nagorno-Karabakh” can we talk about?! There is the Karabakh zone, the Karabakh region.
This is the territory of Azerbaijan and everyone accepts it. Therefore, the first meeting of the commissions on the delimitation of the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia is of great importance,” Aliyev noted, Azerbaijani media reported.
