President: I can positively assess activities of Russian peacekeepers


September 27, Fineko/abc.az. Of course, we inform Russia about our position on the situation, we express our fair claims. But the sabotage group entered there when the Russian peacekeepers were not yet fully deployed. The war ended on 10 November. After that, it took some time for the Russian contingent, about 2,000 military personnel to be stationed there. There were a lot of gaps at that time. We must be fair here. At that time, they had not yet taken full control of the area of responsibility. The Armenians took advantage of this and penetrated into our liberated lands.

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev stated about this in an interview for news agency Anadolu, answering a journalist's question.

"But in general, the activities of the Russian peacekeeping forces can be assessed positively. Of course, there are issues that we are not satisfied with, on which we have complaints. First of all, this is due to illegal visits of foreign citizens to our lands. We have repeatedly raised this issue. Because Karabakh is our territory," the president said.
