Ilham Aliyev: long-lasting peace in Karabakh depends on proper evaluation of realities
Proper evaluation of the situation after the end of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh guarantees the establishment of long-lasting peace, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said receiving in a video format co-chair of the Nizami Ganjavi International Center Ismail Serageldin.
"Azerbaijan restored its independence, restored international law, and created actually new realities in the region and the world. I think a lot will depend now on proper evaluation of these realities by regional countries, by big powers in order to use this opportunity to establish long-lasting peace and stability in the region," Ilham Aliyev said.
He added that today Azerbaijan really demonstrates its willingness to turn the page of hostility, turn the page of hatred, of confrontation, and to build the future for the region.
"And actually, we already started, we started reconstruction, we started implementing projects which will be beneficial for all the regional countries, and eventually, for stability and predictability in the region. Therefore, I think all of us need to evaluate the new realities and planning our actions as governments, as international organizations to focus on positive opportunities for cooperation and peaceful co-existence," the head of state said.
