Unfortunately, this issue has not yet found a solution," said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at the opening ceremony of the building for Karabakh war invalids and families of martyrs in Sumgait, APA reports.

The President noted that genocide policy is run for many years against Azerbaijanis" The three countries have officially recognized the Khojaly genocide as an act of genocide. Sure that the number of these countries will grow gradually. Azerbaijan's rights are confirmed by the resolutions and decisions of international organizations. There are four UN Security Council resolutions as well as decisions and resolutions of other international organizations, which demand the withdrawal of Armenian forces from the occupied lands. But Armenia disregards international law and our lands are still under occupation. There is no and cannot be change in the principal position of Azerbaijan in the settlement of this problem. Our position is based on the historical justice and international law. "

"The historical truth is that Nagorno Karabakh is our historic and native land. Today’s Armenia is created on the historical Azerbaijani lands. This is a historical document, in 1918 one of the first decisions of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic was to transfer Erevan to Armenia as its capital. I have repeatedly expressed my thoughts about that decision. And today I want to say that it was a big mistake, a big crime. But this is historical truth. Erivan khanate is our historical land. Once, in the beginning of the last century in the historical lands of Azerbaijan fictitious Armenian state was created. Now, we can never afford the second fictitious Armenian state is created in the historical lands of Azerbaijan. It will never happen.

Because the international community does not recognize and will never recognize Nagorno Karabakh as an independent entity. No country recognizes Nagorno Karabakh, and this so-called entity, controlled by criminal regime, functions illegally. There is no legal, political and economical future for them. Because Azerbaijan is a key country in resolving issues in the region. Azerbaijan’s possibilities, potential, the strength of our army and our political influence are growing. Today Azerbaijan is playing its role in the world affairs, Azerbaijan is a member of the world's number one structure - the UN Security Council and headed this structure in May of this year. Azerbaijan expresses its principal and firm position on all the ongoing issues of the world. "

The President also said that the mediators should be more active in the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.

"The state-occupier should be given very serious signal to withdraw from the occupied lands. International law can not be violated. However, unfortunately, we do not see these signals. We mostly hear more balanced expressions. Of course, the state-occupier - Armenia is trying to "freeze" the current situation, the status quo. But it will not work, not because the international structure will influence them. We have not so big hopes in this respect. We rely on our own strength. In this matter like economic-political issues we rely on our own strength, the will of the Azerbaijani people and the power of the Azerbaijani army. Azerbaijan will restore its territorial integrity by any means. Both historical justice and international law recognize this right for us," the President said.
