OREANDA-NEWS. President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev stated that the withdrawal of the Armenian military from Nagorno-Karabakh is the only condition for ending the armed conflict.

According to the politician, if the Armenian authorities fulfil this condition, the fighting will stop. He declared that negotiations on the settlement of the conflict have not yielded results, therefore currently there is no need for calls for dialogue. In Aliyev’s opinion, “Armenia must abandon the occupation policy.” “The Prime Minister of Armenia… set seven conditions for us. I said not so long ago that we reject these conditions. We have only one condition – the Armenian Armed Forces… immediately leave our lands,” the head of state said at a meeting with the wounded in the hostilities.

Aliyev noted that Baku “wants peace and a solution to the conflict.” At the same time, he promised that Azerbaijan will “restore its territorial integrity.” “I warned that if the negotiations fail, Azerbaijan will resolve the issue by military means. Our cause is just, we want to restore our territorial integrity, and we will do it,” the Azerbaijani President concluded.
