Azerbaijan never fought again civilians
A construction of the army remains a priority policy of Azerbaijan that lives in a state of war. In 1994 a ceasefire regime was introduced, which Armenia violates constantly, resorting to the armed provocations whenever the international pressure on the country increases. "The co-chairs of the Minsk Group has repeatedly declared that the status quo is unacceptable and must be changed. This suggests that the occupation must come to an end, ‘’ Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stated during his visit to the area located on the front line.
The president said that Baku's position is gaining support on a global scale; seeing this, Armenia resorted to the armed provocations to derail the talks and to continue the aggressive policy. Thus, the positions of the Azerbaijani Army were attacked in the summer of 2014, and in November of the same year, after some hope emerged in the course of negotiations, Armenia held the large-scale exercises involving personnel of 47 thousand people in Aghdam. Some days the Azerbaijani side kept a low profile, but after two Armenian military helicopters attacked the positions of Azerbaijan army destroyed one of them. Using this, Yerevan accused Baku of violating the cease-fire, and the negotiation process stagnated once again.
Ilham Aliyev stressed that the Azerbaijani army destroys enemy firing positions, when it is shelled, but has never led and does not lead a war against the civilian population. At the same time, the Azerbaijani army will always protect its citizens. "On the night of April 27-28 about 2 am the first shell fell in the 6th school’s yard. At this time, I was at home. I went over the fence, so that I did not get a splinter. After this a grenade fall. I went out on the road followed by a second bomb fell on our house,’’ Mubariz Hasanov from Terter said to the president.
Ilham Aliyev assured the residents that all the houses will be restored, "the Azerbaijani state will help, we will allocate funds. Everything should be dulled, documented, we need to shoot the photo, video of the houses to set the damage. After that we will give them to the court."
At a meeting with the military units deployed in the Terter region, the Azerbaijani President said that the Azerbaijani side demonstrated peacefulness, agreeing on a ceasefire on April 5th, but on the night of April 27- 28th the settlements located in the vicinity of the contact line are shelled once again. Now the advantage on the line of contact is entirely on the side of Azerbaijan and its military positions have been strengthened further.
The Azerbaijani President said that Armenia has a serious pressure from the side of the co-chair countries, "True, they do not openly declare about it, trying to keep the balance, but the reality is that today the party that prevents a peaceful resolution of the conflict is Armenia. We do not want a war. We want the issue to be resolved peacefully. The negotiations conducted just for visibility make no sense. "
According to Aliyev, all the international organizations, the UN, the OSCE, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Council of Europe, the Non-Aligned Movement and other organizations protect the fair position of Azerbaijan. No international organization supports the aggressive policy of Armenia, no country in the world does not put into the question the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. "The territorial integrity of Azerbaijan must be restored. The occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and other lands are our historical lands. The Azerbaijani citizens must live on these lands. We will try to guide Armenia in the right way through negotiations. We will strengthen the diplomatic, political and economic pressure, strengthen our position on the frontline. If there is another Armenian armed provocation against us, the necessary answer will be given again, and the result will be the same,’’ the Azerbaijani President promised.
There are all possibilities for this: the material and technical base of the Azerbaijani Army has been significantly strengthened. The most modern weapons, equipment are purchased, the combat capability of the army is at the highest level, and the feeling of patriotism is very high, not only in the army, but also in the whole society.
Aliyev promised that he would do everything necessary for the construction of the army. "Sometimes the pro-Armenian politicians from different countries accuse me that Azerbaijan increases the military budget more and more. But we have been subjected to aggression. If there had been no such aggression, then, of course, this would not have been necessary. If we had not have such strong combat capabilities, today the situation on the contact line could have been different. "
Azerbaijani President expressed hope that the resolution of the conflict will enable the Armenian state to build an independent state and the aggressive policy would end. "The sooner the Armenian leadership understands that they will be able to develop only in the conditions of peace with Azerbaijan, the faster the conflict will end, ‘’ Ilham Aliyev said.
