Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry: Azerbaijani people are most interested in speedy solution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict
Azerbaijan Republic and Azerbaijani people are the most interested in speedy, peaceful solution of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict, spokesman for Azerbaijan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hikmat Hajiyev, said while commenting on statements of Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and his spouse about the peace.
According to Hajiyev, as a side subjected to military aggression and occupation, Azerbaijani people have been suffered from this war for more than 25 years, "If they really want peace, they must put an end to Armenia’s war against Azerbaijan, withdraw troops from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan and provide return of Azerbaijani refugees to their home," the spokesman said.
He stressed that the 'status quo' should be changed and the fact of military occupation should be eliminated. "Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that this situation may lead to peace and stability in the region. This is the main point and formula of the negotiations conducted via OSCE co-chairs," APA cited the ministry's spokesman as saying.
However, speaking about peace while continuing occupation, conducting annexation of Azerbaijani lands, preventing return of hundreds of thousands of refugees to their home is a insincere approach and nothing but artificial public propaganda, Hikmat Hajiyev stressed.
The spokesman concluded that he hopes the intention of peace of the Armenian PM and his spouse will be switch from word to deed.
