Ilham Aliyev: Positive messages are coming from Armenians living in Karabakh


April 29, Fineko/ "What happened after the war shows that we have no bad intentions. On the contrary, we want peace and recognition of our territorial integrity."

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev stated about this at today’s international conference "South Caucasus: Development & Cooperation" organized at ADA University.

Stressing that the standard of living in our country is much higher compared with Armenia and Azerbaijani territories where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed, the head of state said that positive messages are being received from Armenians living in Karabakh, preliminary contacts have been initiated.

"This is another manifestation of our intentions. They can participate in economic growth in united Azerbaijan and feel safer. But to do this, first of all, they must put an end to separatist tendencies and realize the realities. They need to look at the map and understand that hundreds of thousands of Azerbaijanis will soon return to Kalbajar, Lachin, Shusha, Aghdam, and they will have to live in such an environment, in the neighborhood. They must put an end to the hostility and isolate the separatists. They will benefit from this," President Aliyev said.
