To the question “What would you answer to premier Pashinyan that I met 3 weeks ago? He said that you’re here for a new genocide in Nagorno-Karabakh”, President Aliyev replied. “Absolutely false. All their history is false. There is no signs of that. You know, as I said, there are thousands of Armenians living in Azerbaijan. There are no Azerbaijanis living in Armenia or in Nagorno-Karabakh. 99% of Armenian population are ethnic Armenians. Can you find any other country in our region where such a full domination of one nationality? It is a mono-ethnic republic. Why? Because either they expel everybody, or other nationalities cannot live there.”
The head of state stressed that unlike Armenia, Azerbaijan is a multi-ethnic, multi-confessional country. “Therefore, talking about the so-called genocide is absolutely unacceptable and this is another fake which they want to present as they always do,” he said.
President Aliyev pointed out that Pashinyan tries to use every fake method in order to get some support.
“Therefore, it is absolutely wrong. And as I said, and I am responsible for what I am saying, those Armenians who live in Nagorno-Karabakh can be sure that their security will be provided,” he added.
