Azerbaijan: President Aliyev accuses OSCE Minsk Group of protecting Armenia

Azerbaijan, Baku
October 26, 2020 at 15:55 GMT +00:00 · Published

Azeri President Ilham Aliyev criticised the OSCE Minsk Group for its actions on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, speaking in Baku on Monday.

"If you want this problem to be solved, then you need to apply sanctions against Armenia. This is in your hands. You are the permanent member of the UN Security Council, you can solve any problem," he stated.

“The frozen conflict [in Nagorno-Karabakh] works for everyone, but not for us. I mean the Co-Chair countries of the OSCE. And most of all it suits Armenia," added Aliyev.

The long-time Azeri leader also accused the OSCE Minsk Group members of protecting Armenia.

“All activity of the OSCE Minsk Group is aimed to save Armenia. [It is aimed to] save the aggressor, invader, the organiser of Khojaly genocide, who was bombing civilians of Ganja with ballistic missiles.”

"We don’t violate international law, we don’t enter the territory of Armenia. We are liberating the territories, which have been recognised on the international level as Azerbaijani," concluded Aliyev.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh has continued despite a third, US-brokered ceasefire coming into effect at 08:00 local time (04:00 GMT) October 26.
