Baku. Mubariz Aslanov - APA. “Azerbaijan’s economy constitutes 75% of the economy of the South Caucasus,” Elnur Aslanov, Chief of the Political Analyses and Information Department of Azerbaijan’s Presidential Administration, said addressing the opening ceremony of the 2nd congress of the young CIS Orientalists in Baku, APA reports.

Noting that economic, political initiatives in the region are impossible without Azerbaijan’s participation, official of the Presidential Administration said there are no ethnic, national or religious problems in Azerbaijan.

“There has always been tolerance in our country. Azerbaijan is a country, where the representatives of various religions and nations are living and functioning in the atmosphere of tolerance. Jews, Christians, Muslims are living in the atmosphere of mutual understanding. This is our greatest achievement,” he said.

Elnur Aslanov said Azerbaijan, as one of the leading states of the South Caucasus and the world in terms of economy, is taking an active part in Europe’s energy security. “Azerbaijan is a member of all leading international and regional organizations,” he said.

Speaking about Karabakh problem, the department chief said as a result of Armenia’s aggressive policy Nagorno Karabakh and 7 adjacent regions of Azerbaijan have been under occupation for more than 20 years.

“Karabakh is a historical territory of Azerbaijan. The whole world, international organizations recognize Nagorno Karabakh Azerbaijan’s as historical territory of Azerbaijan and support solution of the conflict within Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, inviolability of its borders. Various international organizations, including UN Security Council have passed 4 resolutions. Unfortunately, Karabakh conflict has not been solved due to Armenia’s non-constructive position and ongoing double standards. Due to its aggressive and non-constructive policy, Armenia is in isolation in the South Caucasus. Armenia is not participating in political or economic projects implemented in the South Caucasus. As I have said, its reason is Armenia’s aggressive policy and non-constructive position. Azerbaijan expects constructive position and rational approach in the solution of the conflict,” he said.
