February 1, Fineko/abc.az. In case of changes in the Constitution of Armenia and other documents, peace can be achieved.

ABC.AZ reports that Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said this when receiving Secretary General of the Inter-Parliamentary Union Martin Chungong.

"If Armenia puts an end to territorial claims against Azerbaijan and introduces amendments to the Constitution and other normative legal documents, it will be possible to achieve peace between the two countries," he emphasized.

"Armenia's claims against Azerbaijan in international courts are based on such issues as non-recognition of Azerbaijan's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and the separation of Karabakh from Azerbaijan. If Armenia puts an end to territorial claims against Azerbaijan and makes changes to the Constitution and other normative legal documents, then peace can be achieved," the president said during the meeting.

The head of state added that there is already de facto peace between Azerbaijan and Armenia, and a peaceful situation has been reigning on the border of the two countries for several months.

"But in order to bring this process to logical conclusion, it is necessary to sign a peace treaty and put an end to Armenia's territorial claims against Azerbaijan," the president said.

In this regard, President Aliyev noted that the Declaration of Independence of Armenia contains direct calls for the unification of the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan with Armenia and the violation of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, and references to this document are also reflected in the Constitution of Armenia.

"In addition, other normative legal documents of Armenia also have territorial claims against Azerbaijan, in many conventions to which Armenia has joined, and in other documents there are numerous reservations that do not recognize Azerbaijan's sovereignty over Karabakh," the country’s leader said.
