Azerbaijan`s Foreign Ministry: Respect for territorial integrity is a principled position for us

Baku, November 1, AZERTAC

"We recognize and respect the territorial integrity of other countries. Respect for territorial integrity is a principled position for us. At the same time, we demand other countries to respect Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” spokesperson for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry Leyla Abdullayeva has told a press conference.

She said: "Armenia's purpose in spreading false information, as well as targeting Azerbaijani civilians despite the humanitarian ceasefires is clear. The Armenian side is not interested in resolving the conflict through negotiations, it is obvious. The goal of the Armenian side is to strengthen the occupation, as well as to involve other states - third parties into the conflict. The Azerbaijani side, including President Ilham Aliyev, has repeatedly brought to the international community’s attention and stated that Azerbaijan has no claims to the territories of other countries. Today, Azerbaijan is conducting self-defense measures on its sovereign territory against the Armenian armed forces, who maintains its illegal presence. The steps are being taken to ensure territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, as demanded by the UN Security Council resolutions adopted in 1993. In other words, Azerbaijani armed forces are ensuring the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions today. We would like to bring to the attention of the Armenian side, who wants to involve other countries in the conflict, that these kinds of claims will yield no results.”

“Azerbaijan enjoys ties of friendship and cooperation with all its neighboring countries. We recognize and respect the territorial integrity of other countries. Respect for territorial integrity is a principled position for us. At the same time, we demand other countries to respect Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders,” Abdullayeva added.
