President Ilham Aliyev: The region will be much safer if three Caucasian countries unite efforts

Baku, January 21, AZERTAC

“We are in the middle of nowhere, because unfortunately, Armenia did not respond to our proposal to sign a peace deal, which will be very simple and based on the fundamental principles of international law. Commissioner Hahn hinted to the absence of Armenia here. He said there are two South Caucasian countries but there are at least three. I know whom he meant, but why Armenia is not here because our proposal with Georgia to start trilateral format of cooperation was rejected by Armenia,” said President Ilham Aliyev at a plenary meeting on “Eurasia’s Middle Corridor: From Pathway to Highway” held as part of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

“I highly value the efforts of my friend Irakli Garibashvili, who hosted a meeting of foreign ministers of Azerbaijan and Armenia. And Georgian colleague joined, so our suggestion was for the leaders to meet in Georgia, because Georgia always historically was a place where all the neighbors met, but Armenia is not ready for that. And this is one of the potential risks,” the head of state mentioned.

The President noted that the region would be safer if all three South Caucasus nations unite their efforts towards such issues as energy, transportation, security, stability, border delimitation.
