April 5, Fineko/ Another source of danger is being created for the South Caucasus.

ABC.AZ reports that Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, made this statement when receiving Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, former Foreign Minister of Türkiye, member of the Turkish Grand National Assembly, head of the delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.

Touching the matter of the trilateral meeting between the United States, the European Union, and Armenia in Brussels, the head of state stressed that this poses another source of danger for the South Caucasus.

Despite recent attempts by high-ranking officials from both the U.S and the EU to assure, during phone conversations initiated by them, that this meeting is not aimed against Azerbaijan, President Ilham Aliyev emphasized that “we understand this is against Azerbaijan and cooperation in the South Caucasus. Its objective is to create divisive lines and isolate our country.”

The head of state reiterated that the statements made by the European Parliament and the Council of Europe against Azerbaijan since September last year until now, and the attempts to establish Armenia as an armed outpost in the South Caucasus, will cause much greater damage in the future.

“Therefore, we have issued statements to warn our partners in the United States and Europe about this.”

Saying that the geopolitical situation has changed, President Ilham Aliyev stressed the necessity of the Azerbaijan-Türkiye alliance to remain strong as it has always been, and expressed confidence that the desires of those seeking to break this alliance would be in vain.
