Azerbaijan determined to get back occupied territory – president

May 13 2004

Nakhichevan. (Interfax-Azerbaijan) – Azerbaijani President Ilham
Aliyev said Azerbaijan will not put up with the occupation of its
lands and will ensure they are liberated.

“The Azerbaijani army is strong and is capable of solving any problem,”
Aliyev told servicemen while opening a new garrison in Nakhichevan
on Wednesday.

“Our people can restore the country’s territorial integrity at any
moment. International law gives us this right,” he said.

Aliyev said the army must be strengthened, given that part of the
country’s territory is under Armenian occupation.

Azerbaijan’s economic development will make money available for
enhancing the army’s combat readiness, Aliyev said.

He said that as before Azerbaijan believes the Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict can be settled peacefully.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
