There would be no need to resolve the threat against Azerbaijan by force, and the issue would have been solved peacefully if the United States had reacted differently with regard to threats against Azerbaijan and international peace and security, spokesperson for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry Aykhan Hajizada said as he responded to anti-Azerbaijani statements by the U.S. Department of State officials, APA reports.
“The United States directed Armenia on the wrong path, and supported the sustainment of the illegal regime in the territories of Azerbaijan by funding and providing opportunities for the representatives of the separatists to visit the United States to advocate for their illegitimate cause.”
“It was the mediation efforts involving the United States failing to yield results and the failure to prevent Armenia's aggressive policy that led Azerbaijan to liberate its lands militarily. Therefore, among other facts the United States also bears responsibility for its inaction to resolve the former conflict peacefully,” he noted.
“It is important to end the policy of emboldening the aggressor state Armenia in our region, which is a major impediment before ensuring peace and stability.
It is unacceptable to speak with Azerbaijan in the language of threat. Any unfriendly action against Azerbaijan would not bear positive results, and such actions would be adequately addressed,” Hajizada emphasized.
