The statement came from Elman Abdullayev spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
He was commenting on the statements of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan during the reception in honor of the 20th anniversary of Armenian independence organized in Los Angeles.
‘Instead of attempting to mislead the local and world community, the Armenian leadership should demonstrate will and realize that peace and stability in the region are impossible without liberation of the occupied lands of Azerbaijan’.
He said that the president of Armenia should not forget that it is time to take steps to solve the Karabakh conflict rather than saying loud words while taking a trip to California.
‘It is now not the time to blame someone while occupying alien lands and committing ethnic cleansing. There is no stability and peace in our region due to the unconstructive position of Armenia’, Abdullayev said.
Sargsyan said in Los Angeles that Armenia has not yet attained stable peace which is why it is obliged to spend huge funds and resources to ensure security of their people and state.
