The President noted that although there are no results, announced in recent months, international mediators, particularly opinions about the unacceptability of the status quo, give some hope. “That is, the status quo is unacceptable, should be changed, the conflict is not "frozen", and changing the status quo, of course, demands the withdrawal of occupying forces from the occupied lands and the settlement way of the conflict passes through it. The occupying forces must be withdrawn from the occupied lands. International law should be the basis for any issue, especially issues related to the conflict. Use of all opportunities We will strive, in a short time, to resolve this issue in our favor - on the basis of international law. In this direction were also taken extensive measures, conduct exact policy. Economic indicators both this year and the previous years, our military capabilities suggest that the gap between Armenia and Azerbaijan is increasing. These two countries are not comparable, the difference between us as between sky and earth. All ,and the international community and the parties and entities directly involved in the matter know it. Most likely, on the basis of the recent statement about changing the status quo, stands it. So as we know, and every impartial observer knows that Azerbaijan strengthens. Azerbaijani population increases but Armenian population decreases. With regard to military matters, all the statistics in the economic sphere clearly show who is who. Simply, all can see that what a great way Azerbaijan passed and country is increasing day by day. As for the military balance, I can say that until recently - perhaps as a result of Armenian propaganda a difference in this area, the difference in our favor, not enough was realized by international agencies and observers. However, the parades, held recently in both Azerbaijan and Armenia, have demonstrated that who’s who. I believe that holding military parade in Armenia was their big mistake. Because after that so called “parade”all realized that how weak the Armenian military is. Me, parhapes you and all the public firstly saw that the military equipment can not move by itself, they demonstrated at the parade, leading to the trailers and trucks moves with the help of others. It may have several reasons. Maybe this technique does not work, maybe there is no fuel ot both of two reasons. Most likely, both factors played a role in this. This parade has shown once again that Armenia is not an independent state. I think that they should quickly realize that the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh conflict will serve their interests”, - President Ilham Aliyev said in his speech at the Cabinet meeting.
