ArmInfo. Yesterday's statement by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev is not new or unprecedented, but it is interesting. This was announced on May 29 in an interview with ArmInfo correspondent by adviser to the President of Artsakh on foreign affaires, David Babayan, commenting on yesterday's statement by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
According to Babayan, it is interesting because it shows that as very serious processes are taking place in Azerbaijan, it is likely with Aliyev himself. <The ideas expressed by the president of Azerbaijan are devoid of logic, absolute cacophony, especially for the part that concerns Nagorno-Karabakh. He says that <the Armenians stood at attention>, <wrote some kind of anonymous letters>. This is hate, plus ignorance, plus some kind of confusion of facts. Maybe all this is connected personally with Aliyev, and maybe it reflects the underlying processes taking place in Azerbaijan>, the NKR presidential adviser on foreign affairs emphasized.
He also said that after all the ideas that Aliyev expressed, his statements about a phased solution are meaningless. <The President of Azerbaijan can no longer hide his true intentions. He wants to destroy Artsakh and Armenia. His claims to Yerevan, to Karabakh, these formulations are not connected with tact, diplomacy. All these statements show complex and in-depth processes in this state>, David Babayan noted. Artsakh's presidential adviser on foreign affairs added that Ilham Aliyev openly expresses his anti- Armenian policy. <The President of Azerbaijan acts as a geopolitical traffic light. Aliyev, without realizing it, warns us that Azerbaijan should not be trusted. As if lighting a red light that calls us to be vigilant. Thus, Aliyev shows us his true face>, Babayan concluded.
To note, yesterday President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev met with the immigrants. The President of Azerbaijan noted that there is no other option for the conflict, except for a phased one. Aliyev also explained how he sees a phased solution to the conflict: <At the first stage, part of the land is liberated. And there can be no other option. But I say that this can only be a phased approach. Our goal, our main goal is to fully and finally ensure our sovereignty, and we will do it. Let no one doubt it. We just need to be stronger, correctly assess the time and geopolitical situation in order to solve the problem>, the President of Azerbaijan emphasized.
He also noted that the <ancient Azerbaijani city of Irevan> was given to the Armenians. This fact cannot be justified and cannot be forgiven.
