The accusations made by the EU representative, who failed to make any effort to persuade Armenia to act in line with the norms and principles of international law, constitute a threat to Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and sovereignty, says a commentary by Azerbaijan’s Ministry bof Foreign Affairs in response to groundless accusations against Azerbaijan by Josep Borrell, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, APA reports.

"Moreover, we would like to emphasize that both the 44-day Patriotic War and the 24-hour anti-terror measures of September of this year were carried out on Azerbaijan's sovereign territory. Azerbaijan has regained its sovereignty by legitimate means within the norms and principles of international law," said the Ministry.

Ministry noted that Against the backdrop of EU member states facing agressive separatist tendencies, attempts by the EU foreign policy body to incite separatism in the territory of Azerbaijan with regard to our country’s just struggle against existing threats in its sovereign territories are a source of serious concern.
