Baku-APA. “Unfortunately, last year there was no any progress in the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict”, - President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said it at the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers dedicated to the results of socioeconomic development in 2014 and objectives for 2015, APA reports.

The Head of State noted that and last year Armenia has chosen a strategy of imitations in the negotiation process: “I believe that neither for us nor for intermediaries it’s no longer a secret that Armenia does not want peace. Armenia does want this conflict to be settled, and does not want to leave the occupied lands. Despite the fact that the presidents of the OSCE Minsk Group have repeatedly said that the status quo is unacceptable, but these are just only words, nothing but a word. Words, only words, and these words have no serious policy. If the status quo is unacceptable - and it is, of course, unacceptable - then has to be taken any measures. It should be exerted pressure on the aggressor state. It should be forced to withdraw from the occupied lands. Otherwise, it will be some kind of hypocrisy. It’s making some statement, but after no work is carried out. As well as, the UN Security Council adopted 4 resolutions and it’s already 20 years that these resolutions remain unimplemented. Why elsewhere resolutions are immediately implemented, and coming to our case are not implemented? This is an injustice, it is a double standard. "

According to President Ilham Aliyev, the Azerbaijani people already knows, understands that failure to resolve this conflict can not be explained only by the unconstructive position of Armenia: "It seems that in the world there are forces that are not interested in resolving this conflict. Apparently, there are forces that are interested in seeing this conflict remained frozen, semi-frozen state and use it as a means of pressure on Azerbaijan. The case we see in recent years in different regions such as in Europe, in the Middle East reinforces this position, this approach. This is the conclusion of these processes. Therefore, should be clarified that until when we encounter these double standards?! "

Azerbaijani President noted that in the summer of last year and at the end of the previous year Armenia repeatedly resorted to an open provocation: "And both times Azerbaijani army gave a fitting rebuff to the enemy, pointing them their place. In the summer months, more than 50 invaders killed. In November, as a provocation of Armenians did not remain unanswered. Responsibility for the events that occurred as a result of all these provocations is leadership of Armenia - criminal, dictatorial regime. For today's deplorable situation in Armenia is directly responsible present and former leadership of the country. Because of their aggressive policy, Armenia could not manifest itself as an independent country. In fact, it did not even achieve independence. It simply is a mere formality."

"But in this issue Azerbaijan takes a principled position. Our position is based on international law. Our army strengthens our position. Our army last year showed its power, showed capability. She showed and the enemy, and the enemy patrons that Azerbaijani army is capable at any time to restore its territorial integrity. Just it should be better if this issue will be resolved through the way of negotiations. I believe that the presence of these several factors further strengthens our position", - President Ilham Aliyev stressed.

The Head of State emphasized that although there was not any progress in the negotiations, however, in the past year much has been done to resolve the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict - both in terms of policy, within a regional framework, as well as in the military sphere - on the battlefield: “We gave a fitting rebuff to the armenians that that they still can not come in themselves are in disarray, in hysterics. They are now trying to blame us at various international events. But the question arises: what Armenian soldiers do in Agdam, Fizuli? What Armenian army is doing there? Why no one openly does not say it them, except us? Why involved in the matter mediators stay indifferent to it? These are rhetorical questions. We know why. Nevertheless, we have to ask these questions at every event, every forum."

According to President Ilham Aliyev, these questions should be asked by government officials, public figures, deputies, ordinary citizens, members of civil society: "Let them answers to these questions, for the policy of double standards, pro-Armenian policy. Otherwise, already it is difficult to tolerate such hypocrisy. I believe that already there is no need to speak in the language of diplomacy. I want to repeat that the truth is that remaining of our lands under occupation is not just the work of Armenia. Armenia is powerless, poor country, in a helpless state. Of course, if Armenia has no patrons in various capitals, Nagorno-Karabakh conflict would found its fair settlement. Even today the Armenian leadership recognizes it. Without external support they can not keep the lands under the occupation. But we are fighting alone. Our recent history has shown that we are even alone able to struggle, protect its national interests".

“In 2015 we will further strengthen the army potential of the country. Rather large funds allocated for these purposes. Suffice it to say that the funds earmarked for military spending, more than double the total budget of Armenia. In our growing army discipline, combat capability, the patriotic spirit is at a high level. We become stronger and Armenia - weaker. This is an inevitable process. That is, in the coming years this process will be even faster", President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said.
