Azerbaijan is a self-sufficient country, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in this regard as he received the delegation led by Managing Director of the German Eastern Business Association Michael Harms on February 28, APA reports.

The head of state said that the ongoing developments and works accomplished in Azerbaijan ensure normal life in the country. “If someone wants to contribute to our development, we are grateful. If not, we will not be disappointed,” the Azerbaijani President underscored.

Noting that Azerbaijan was deprived of its statehood for 70 years during the times of Soviet Union, President Ilham Aliyev underlined that when Azerbaijan just became independent in 1991, it faced aggression from Armenia, and four months after the restoration of its independence, Armenians committed the Khojaly genocide. “They occupied hundreds of villages and cities, destroyed everything. For 30 years, the international so-called community - France, the US, and Russia – co-chairs did nothing to restore justice. “When we started to de-occupy our lands, all of them started to pressure us. Each with different instruments to stop us. They did not want us to liberate our territories. And, last September, when we totally put an end to separatism, they were wrong again. And they're wrong now, some of them. I mean the United States and France. Russia, I think, understands now clearly what's happened and accepts the new realities. But I think the United States and France should also do the same. Otherwise, the situation will not be in line with their plans. They have to work with Azerbaijan - the leading country in the Caucasus with the leading economy, army and very broad international connections.”
