Ilham Aliyev: conflict with Armenia is over, it's time to think about peace
President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev urged Armenia to think about peace and to turn the page of war.
"Today, with Mr. President we broadly discussed our plans, our initiatives and our approaches to the newly emerged situation.. Azerbaijan itself implemented resolutions of the UN Security Council, demanding unconditional and full withdrawal of Armenian troops from our territories, and Azerbaijan has put an end to war. Therefore, now it is time to think about peace and to turn the page. We are ready for that," Aliyev said during a joint press conference with President of the European Council Charles Michel.
"I think that demonstrating good will and very pragmatic approach in a relatively short period of time, we can resolve most of the still remaining issues on the table and lay down the foundation for a broad regional cooperation in the region. EU plays, and I am sure will play very important role from this point of view and the visit of Mr. President to the three countries of the South Caucasus demonstrates European involvement, European agenda. It is fully in line with our agenda," he added.
"Our views coincide with this issue also. Of course, the post-conflict development with respect to connectivity issues, with respect to issues of reconstruction of the liberated territories will be always on our agenda," the head of state said.
“After the second Karabakh war there are new opportunities for opening of all communications in the region," Ilham Aliyev stressed.
