Baku / 08/09/19 / Turan: Official Baku strongly condemns the statement of the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan that Karabakh is Armenia, which he made in Khankendi on August 5. This was stated by the head of the Foreign Relations Department of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev.
“Nagorno-Karabakh is Azerbaijan! This is our historical and inalienable land,” Hajiyev said in a comment.
Pashinyan”s statement testifies to the true policy of official Yerevan, which is the policy of annexation. Such statements also indicate a complete disregard for the opinion of the OSCE Minsk Group, a violation of the norms and principles of international law, and UN documents.
“By such provocative calls, the Armenian leadership puts the region on the brink of a serious crisis. Let no one doubt that Azerbaijan will restore its territorial integrity. Responsibility for the consequences will fall on the Armenian side,” Hajiyev said.
