"Azerbaijan supports the regional peace agenda," President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said during his meeting with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs James O'Brien on December 6, APA reports.
President Ilham Aliyev said that after the end of the conflict and full restoration of Azerbaijan's sovereignty, historic opportunities had arisen for the establishment of peace, noting that the United States could contribute to the process by considering the new realities.
The head of state noted that following the 44-day Patriotic War, Armenia had not fulfilled its obligations, sent weapons and military personnel to the territories of Azerbaijan, and supported separatism. President Ilham Aliyev noted that Azerbaijan had carried out anti-terror measures in its sovereign territories, put an end to aggressive separatism, and demonstrated exemplary compliance with the requirements of humanitarian law during the operation. The President pointed out that no harm had been done to civilians and infrastructure.
