  Armenia must renounce territorial claims against Azerbaijan – president aide

Armenia must renounce territorial claims against Azerbaijan, Hikmat Hajiyev, Assistant to the Azerbaijani President, Head of the Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration, said at the “44-Day Victory Path” conference held Friday at ADA University, AzVision.az reports.

“There is a problem in relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan,” said Hajiyev, stressing that these ties need to be changed.

“Armenia and Azerbaijan must sign a peace agreement. Both countries must recognize the territorial integrity and sovereignty of each other,” he noted.

The presidential said Armenia’s claims against Azerbaijan show that it does not recognize the latter’s territorial integrity. “This approach must be avoided. Armenia must renounce its territorial claims against Azerbaijan,” Hajiyev added.

He stressed that Armenia’s intention to create another state in the South Caucasus has failed.

“The issue that has always been on the agenda was the liberation of the occupied territories. For the first time in the history of independence, Azerbaijan acts as a country whose territorial integrity has been ensured. The Karabakh issue is no longer a foreign policy issue, it is already an internal matter. Armenia must change its doctrine and renounce its territorial claims against Azerbaijan,” the top official added.
