Nikol Pashinyan admitted defeat, Ilham Aliyev says
Today, at a meeting with a Turkish Foreign Ministry delegation headed by Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Ilham Aliyev said that yesterday, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan de facto admitted the defeat of the Armenian occupation forces in the war against the Azerbaijani army.
This is evidenced by Pashinyan’s official appeal for help to Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Armenia, in fact, has admitted defeat. As you know, recently, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan addressed a letter to Russian President Putin. This letter is, in fact, an admission of defeat, because military support was requested from Russia," he said, adding that Yerevan has no reason to ask for such support.
It should be noted that yesterday Russia voiced the groundlessness of Nikol Pashinyan's demands through the Russian Foreign Ministry, which reported that "Yerevan will be provided with all the necessary assistance if the clashes are carried out directly on the territory of Armenia." Thus, the Armenian authorities were told that their troops were still fighting on foreign soil.
Ilham Aliyev once again stressed that the Azerbaijani army is conducting military operations in the internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan. "There are no operations on the territory of Armenia, and we have no such plans. If we had them, we would have done it in July this year. As you know, then Armenia attacked us on the state border, and we drove Armenia out of our lands, without crossing the border,” the President of Azerbaijan reminded.
Pashinyan's letter to Putin testifies not only to the recognition of defeat in the Karabakh war but also to the desire to win with someone else's help. "On the one hand, he admits defeat, as evidenced by the sent letter, on the other hand, he does not want to give up. Today, the continuation of the war and losses on both sides are due to the dirty actions of Nikol Pashinyan and the great responsibility entrusted to him. All responsibility is on Armenia’s side, "Ilham Aliyev said.
