Jeyhun Bayramov: Peace is within reach for Armenia and Azerbaijan for the 1st time
Baku, June 7, AZERTAC
“With the end of almost three-decade-lasted armed conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan and commitment by both States to mutually respect each other’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and inviolability of their borders, peace is within reach for the first time since the two countries regained their independence,” said Azerbaijan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeyhun Bayramov as he addressed a meeting of the OSCE Permanent Council.
“Since the end of armed conflict under the Trilateral Statement of 10 November 2020, Azerbaijan has been actively working to secure a lasting peace with Armenia, despite the long years of suffering, deprivation, and devastation that the people of Azerbaijan were subjected to as a result of the 30-year long military occupation. The end of the conflict offers an opportunity and real prospects for building peace, consolidating stability, ensuring peaceful coexistence, advancing the reconciliation agenda, and investing in economic development and cooperation,” Jeyhun Bayramov noted.
“With this understanding, Azerbaijan has offered post-conflict normalization agenda to Armenia,” the FM added.
