Azerbaijani MFA: Pashinyan's actions and statements only confirm Armenia's occupation policy
Stating that there is no diplomatic solution to the conflict, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan openly acknowledged that Armenia continues its aggressive policy and the current leadership of this country is not interested in resolving the conflict through negotiations, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
"The real intention of Armenia, which has been repeatedly entreating for a ceasefire as a result of counter-offensive measures of Azerbaijan in response to the new Armenian attack and the liberation of the territories by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, and grossly violating the truce after the humanitarian ceasefire agreements were declared twice, as it is clearly seen from the mentioned statement of the Prime Minister, is not to achieve peace, but rather to resort to a new occupation," the ministry said.
"Demonstrating goodwill and constructiveness, the Azerbaijani side, in its turn, agreed to humanitarian ceasefire twice and stated its support for a negotiated settlement of the conflict on the basis of UN Security Council resolutions. As such, we call on countries that show the same approach to Armenia, the aggressor state, which is not interested in the diplomatic solution of the conflict, and Azerbaijan whose territories have been under occupation for almost 30 years and supports the political solution of the conflict within the framework of international law and UN resolutions, to draw the appropriate conclusions," the statement reads.
"The only way to achieve a sustainable solution to the conflict and de-escalate the tension in the region is through ensuring the rule of international law, the inviolability of internationally recognized borders, and respect for them," the ministry stressed.
