“Promotion of our interests within the framework of the new realities emerging in the region by ensuring Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and international law was a priority. As a result of the end of the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan with the trilateral declaration of the leaders of Azerbaijan, Russia and Armenia dated November 10, 2020, the establishment of relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan on the basis of mutual recognition and respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and state borders was one of the main directions of the foreign policy in 2022,” Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release on the results of 2022.
