"As the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said, there is no more Garabagh problem. Azerbaijan has restored its territorial integrity and sovereignty based on the principles of international law and norms," Hikmat Hajiyev, Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration told Azerbaijani journalists within the framework of the Antalya Diplomacy Forum 2024, APA's correspondent assigned to Antalya reports.

According to Hikmat Hajiyev, the vision of Azerbaijan consists of that continuous peace and tranquility should be ensured in the South Caucasus region.

"Azerbaijan is the bearer of this intention. It is the Republic of Azerbaijan that wrote and presented the text of the draft peace treaty.

But unfortunately, there are forces in our region that implement militarization policy, promote arms race, try to create new separating and dividing lines in the region, and at the same time, they want to bring their geopolitical intrigues outside the South Caucasus region to the region. There are certain forces that tries to develop the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan not as a border, but as a kind of confrontation line, which is unfortunate. We expect that Armenia will not repeat the mistakes of previous years and will pursue a policy that will serve lasting peace in the region. This is the intention of Azerbaijan."
