As reported earlier, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has today accepted credentials of the newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Greece to Azerbaijan, Nikolaos Piperigos.

AZERTAC presents some excerpts from President Ilham Aliyev's remarks at the meeting.

“It is not Azerbaijan that has occupied the territory of Armenia – Armenia has occupied Azerbaijani territory. This is reflected in the documents of all international organizations.”

“The last issue I want to touch upon is the recent tension between Turkey and Greece in the Eastern Mediterranean region. I can tell you, and it is no secret, that Turkey is not only our friend and partner, but also a brotherly country for us. Without any hesitation whatsoever, we support Turkey and will support it in any circumstances. We see the same support from our Turkish brothers. They support Azerbaijan on all issues, and we support them on all issues, including the issue of exploration in the Eastern Mediterranean.”

“I want you to know our position. This position has already been officially announced by the Azerbaijani government on my instructions. I can tell you again that Turkey is not only a friend but a brotherly country for us. The Turks are our brothers. So we will be with them in all matters.”

“I want to find something positive to touch upon, but unfortunately I can't find it. Perhaps we hope that the new government of Greece, which came to power relatively recently, will reconsider the policy of the previous government against Azerbaijan.”

“We can restore contacts and discuss issues that create positive dynamics. But, of course, that will depend on the policy and position of the Greek government.”

  • On November 25 in accordance with a ceasefire agreement Armenians left the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan

    On November 25 2020 in accordance with a ceasefire agreement Armenians left the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan which they occupied in 1993 during the first Karabakh war.

    The Armenian army and population had to leave Kalbajar by November 15. For some reason, the Armenian side asked to extend the deadline for the evacuation of the population and the army until November 25, and Azerbaijan, postponed the deadline due to humanitarian reasons.

    However, Armenians apparently damaged the environment and burned houses in Kalbajar.

    This is an environmental crime that causes serious damage to the ecological situation of the region and the planet in general.

    Azerbaijani side urged the world community, international organizations, including the international organizations working in the field of ecology and environmental protection to stop Armenia that used environmental terrorism, confirmed by the facts of local and foreign media, as a tool for its aggressive actions and called for drastic measures to prevent eco-terrorism committed by the aggressor Armenia.

    At the same time, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources (MENR) addressed a total of 31 international organizations working in the field of ecology and environmental protection to assess these cases.

    It should be noted that the Kalbajar region of Azerbaijan was occupied by Armenians in 1993. At that time, more than 60,000 Azerbaijanis had to leave their homes in less than 10 hours.
