Azerbaijan-EU relations are developing, President Aliyev said. “Over the years, a productive relationship was formed between Azerbaijan and the EU. Today, we discussed regional issues, including the ways to resolve the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. I talked to him about the process of negotiations, gave information about the history of the conflict. This conflict is going on for two decades. Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory is under occupation. The UN Security Council adopted 4 resolutions on unconditional withdrawal of Armenian troops from Azerbaijan. However, Armenia denies these resolutions. We have more than one million refugees and IDPs. Our people underwent ethnic cleansing. We want the conflict to be resolved within the norms and principles of international law. We hope that the occupant will be put more pressure for returning Azerbaijani territories and completing negotiations process. In the future, we will be able to talk about normalizing relations.
