Azerbaijani fundamental position is simple. The conflict must be settled within Azerbaijani "territorial integrity". Armenian armed forces “must be withdrawn from the occupied territories. Our compatriots must return to native lands,” said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, AzerTaj state news agency quotes as reported by Azerbaijani news agency Trend News.
No other point of view is considered beyond this position. Azerbaijan has repeatedly voiced its position on this issue, Aliyev said.
He said that presently, the conflict has not been solved yet.
Azerbaijani President said that at present, Azerbaijani economy can not be compared with Armenian one. "We excel it in all spheres. We have very broad political opportunities. Our international positions are strong. But economic potential is several times higher.
"Regarding with military strength, I would like to stress again that Azerbaijani Army is the strongest one in the region. We intensify our military strength. To tell the truth, it needs huge funds. But we must do it as we live in war terms.
"The war has not finished yet. Its first stage has been completed. We must be ready for releasing our native lands from occupiers any moment," Azerbaijani President said.
