MFA: "atmosphere of peace" requires de-occupation of Azerbaijani territories
Creating an "atmosphere of peace", which is so often stated by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan in the context of settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is impossible without withdrawing the occupying Armenian forces from the Azerbaijani territories and the return of the forcibly expelled Azerbaijani IDPs to these lands, the press service of Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The authorities of Armenia should clearly understand this. These points are inseparable," the ministry stressed.
"The original cause of all troubles is the policy pursued by Armenia against Azerbaijan, the policy of aggression and occupation, and all the rest are consequences, including the absence of an atmosphere of peace and mutual trust. This is an axiom," he statement reads.
