Azerbaijani MFA slams statements of PM Pashinyan

BAKU, Azerbaijan, February 12. On February 11,
2024, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan once again made
unfounded slanderous accusations against Azerbaijan in an interview
with The Telegraph newspaper, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of
Azerbaijan said, Trend reports.

“During the interview, the Prime Minister of Armenia, discussing
the implementation of international agreements and obligations,
attempted to divert attention from Armenia’s occupation of
Azerbaijani territories for almost 30 years, contravening
international law norms, as well as the objectives outlined in the
Alma-Ata Declaration, which is regrettable.

However, there are undeniable facts indicating that after the
44-day Patriotic War, Armenia flagrantly violated the provisions of
the tripartite declaration by refusing to withdraw occupation
forces from Azerbaijani territories. Armenia continued to transfer
weapons, military equipment, and mines to our territories, along
with other gross violations and provocations, which clearly
demonstrate the true intentions of the Armenian side.

The Prime Minister of Armenia is well aware that although the
Armenian side declared recognition of Azerbaijan’s territorial
integrity at meetings in Prague and Sochi, in September 2023,
Armenia issued congratulatory statements regarding the fake
“independence” of the so-called regime created by Yerevan in
Azerbaijani territories and continues to assert claims against
Azerbaijan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity in international
organizations and courts.

Another significant concern is the condition imposed by the
Armenian side upon joining the Alma-Ata Declaration, as well as the
Armenian side’s attempt to overlook existing legislative acts
contradicting the recognition of Karabakh as part of
Azerbaijan.

Instead of engaging in such provocations, thoughts, and actions
filled with political manipulation against Azerbaijan, the Armenian
side should fulfill international obligations and contribute to the
peace process through concrete actions, not just words,” the
ministry said in a statement.
