Baku, March 18, AZERTAC
"Azerbaijan has become an important country not only in the region but on a global scale. But Armenia is a country, which has lost all hopes, lives in depression. And the reason for this is a criminal junta regime, which has illegally occupied Armenia. Armenia's current leadership is the greatest threat to the Armenian people," said President Ilham Aliyev as he made a speech during Novruz festivities.
"Azerbaijan's territorial integrity has never been and will never be a subject of negotiations. Nagorno-Karabakh is an ancient Azerbaijani land. We must restore our territorial integrity. Our stance is backed by international law. The situation in the region is in our favor. It is obvious that economic and military potential is on our side too. Last year's April events showed this once again. That's why we have to be even stronger, we have to further strengthen. We are doing this,” the head of state added.
