"Armenia has only one way for development - to establish normal relations with its neighbors and abdicate from territorial claims, not to use the word Nagorno-Karabakh at all. There is no territorial unit called Nagorno-Karabakh and concept of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict doesn't exist. I repeatedly said and want to restate that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has been resolved and Armenia must accept it and work with us on demarcation of borders," President Ilham Aliyev said.
President Ilham Aliyev made the remarks at his meeting with a leadership and a group of military personnel of Azerbaijani Army on the occasion of the Armed Forces Day at Gulustan Palace.
"Working group on delimitation should be established. There must be preparations for a peace agreement. We are declaring that. We are the winning country. We have destroyed Armenia. You know very well what difficult conditions we were faced with. They built fortifications and six lines of defense in 30 years. The natural terrain of that region was very favorable for them. We have liberated these lands at the cost of the lives and heroism of our heroic sons. Our youth, soldiers and officers were putting their lives on the line. Everyone was saying that they would rather die than retreat. We have won the victory in such difficult conditions. Therefore, Armenia must fully understand that we can complete any military task and no-one can stop us. They should know that the iron fist is in place," President Aliyev said.
