Baku. Malahat Najafova – APA. Armenia, as a state committed occupation and aggression against the Republic of Azerbaijan in contravention of the norms and principles of international law and the Charter of the United Nations, bears full responsibility for the escalation of the situation, said spokesman for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry Hikmet Hajiyev, commenting on the recent escalation of the situation on the front line, APA reports.

He said the presence of Armed Forces of Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan leads to escalation the tension that poses a threat to regional stability and security.

“Armenia’s deliberate provocative acts to aggravate the situation are aimed at hindering the resolution of the conflict and maintaining the status quo that emerged as a result of the Armenian occupation and aggression against Azerbaijan. Using the pretext “escalation of the situation on the front line” as a tool, the Armenian regime is desperately seeking to divert people’s attention from the domestic socio-economic and demographic crisis, especially the tense political situation observed in recent days within the country. The heavy losses which Armenia suffered on the front line are the consequence of this irresponsible policy of the Armenian regime. Armenia’s participation in the negotiation process on the settlement of the conflict along with all these provocative acts is only political speculation and aimed at imitation and misleading the international community,” he stressted.

H. Hajiyev said that to find a solution to the conflict, Armenia’s occupying forces should first withdraw from Azerbaijani territories, and the occupation and aggression should be ended.
