Azerbaijani President: Armenia destroyed the whole of our cultural legacy in occupied lands

Baku, May 5, AZERTAC

President Ilham Aliyev has called Armenia`s occupation of Azerbaijani lands “the only problem our country faces”. “Azerbaijan`s Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven adjacent districts are under occupation. The policy of ethnic cleansing was conducted against Azerbaijan, all our mosques were destroyed,” said the head of state as he addressed the opening ceremony of the 4th World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue on the theme "Advancing Intercultural Dialogue: New Avenues for Human Security, Peace and Sustainable Development". “We restored an Armenian church in the center of Baku, but Armenia destroyed the whole of our cultural legacy in the occupied lands. This was confirmed by the fact-finding missions of the OSCE.”

“Armenia continues to ignore the UN Security Council`s four resolutions on the liberation of the occupied territories. In some cases, UN resolutions are implemented in just hours, but these resolutions relating to Azerbaijan have not been implemented for years, which is a sign of double standards.”

“The Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be solved within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Nagorno-Karabakh is a historical Azerbaijani territory, its legal part,” President Ilham Aliyev added.
