ArmInfo.Presidents of Azerbaijan and Italy Ilham Aliyev and Sergio Mattarella during a meeting in Rome discussed the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement. So, according to APA, Mattarella during a joint statement to the press, in particular, noted: "We talked about achieving a certain stable result related to Nagorno-Karabakh. We from the Italian side express constant support for this issue. We hope that thanks to political negotiations on this issue certain results will be achieved very soon. "
In turn, Aliyev noted that the issue of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was really raised at the meeting, and assured that the ways to resolve this problem are indicated in the Joint Declaration."This declaration says that Italy and Azerbaijan respect and support territorial integrity, the sovereignty of each other, inviolability of borders. At the same time, the need to resolve the Karabakh conflict is precisely on the basis of these principles, the Helsinki Final Act, resolutions and resolutions adopted by the UN and OSCE "I think that this is a very fair position based on international law, and we are grateful to the Italian side for this position," the Azerbaijani leader said.
Speaking about steps related to a concrete solution to the issue, Aliyev emphasized that Armenia comes out with very disappointing, disproving and contradictory statements."Once the Armenian leader said that Nagorno-Karabakh is Armenia. Then he said that Nagorno-Karabakh is an independent state. Both of them do not reflect reality. Nagorno-Karabakh is Azerbaijan. This is evidenced by the history, norms, and principles of international law. Territorial the integrity of Azerbaijan, including Nagorno-Karabakh, is recognized and accepted by the whole world. Therefore, the settlement of the conflict is possible only on the basis of the norms and principles of international law, within the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan," Aliyev summarized.
