Speaker of the Milli Majlis Sahiba Gafarova once again unmasked the Armenian side’s lies in her speech at the 56th plenary sitting of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the CIS Member States in Bishkek, the capital city of Kyrgyz Republic, APA reports.

The Speaker said that Azerbaijan had come up with the initiative of signing a peace treaty with Armenia, to be based on five principles of international law, having freed her own lands of Armenian occupation in 2020. However, Armenia which did recognise Garabagh as an Azerbaijani territory in word has in deed most deplorably been committing political and military provocations all the three years. Not fulfilling its obligations under the Trilateral Statement, Armenia had not withdrawn its armed forces from the Garabagh Region of Azerbaijan and continued carrying weapons, ammunition and military servicemen to it.

Sahiba Gafarova went further to remark that, apart from the more than a million mines planted during the period of occupation, Armenia had continued the mining in the already-freed territories. On 2 September this year the Armenian Prime Minister congratulated on the fake ‘Independence Day’ the separatist regime created by Armenia in the lawfully Azerbaijani territory and supported by Armenia actively. On 9 September, that illegal entity held the equally fictitious ‘presidential elections’. Having described those steps as provocative and having been levelled at Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, the Speaker of the Milli Majlis said about the deaths of 6 civilians and police officers in mine explosions on 19 September 2023 – those mines the Armenian armed forces had planted in our de-occupied lands deliberately. Overall, approximately 340 people have either been killed or wounded by mine explosions since the conclusion of the war.

The Speaker of the Milli Majlis stressed as she was telling of the September 2023 anti-terrorist measures that those had pursued the goal of letting Azerbaijan restore her constitutional order and rendering harmless the illegal armed groups. The anti-terrorist measures that had been implemented within 23 hours had as results the complete disarmament of the Armenian troops in Garabagh, Azerbaijan having put paid to the separatist regime in Garabagh, again, and restored entirely her sovereignty over her own internationally recognised territory.
Speaker Sahiba Gafarova highlighted the fact that Azerbaijan had acted completely in accordance with international humanitarian law in the course of the anti-terrorist measures. So, no damage was done to civilian population and civilian infrastructure whilst those measures had been carried out. Not a single fact of ‘ethnic cleansing’ and forcible deportation of Armenians from Garabagh had been put on record, either. That was confirmed by two UN missions that had visited the region.

Despite these commonly known facts, Armenia still continues deceiving international community with the false and groundless claims aimed at Azerbaijan, Sahiba Gafarova said before she reiterated that the Armenian accusations were lies.
