The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan comments on the allegations made by the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, during his speech at the government meeting, APA reports citing the Ministry.
"In parallel with the use of the Aghdam-Khankandi road for the delivery of cargo to Armenian residents if necessary, instead of protesting the provocative actions of some representatives of Armenians who opposed the proposal to intensify traffic on Lachin road, we would like to remind the Prime Minister, who accused Azerbaijan of starving Armenian residents, that at present, trucks sent by the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society to Aghdam-Khankandi direction are waiting for the passage to Khankandi in the area.
If the Armenian side really needed the transported cargo, they would not have prevented the passage of these cargoes to the territory by demanding the blocking of the road by the peacekeeping contingent.
It would be best for the Prime Minister of Armenia, who supposedly supports the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, to support the reintegration policy of the residents of Armenian origin living in the Garabagh region within the framework of the Azerbaijani legislation and refrain from interventions against the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan.
We’re hopeful that the Armenian side will correctly assess the realities formed in the region in the post-conflict period and will show a constructive position in the negotiations with Azerbaijan for establishing peace," said the Ministry.
