May 13 2004
NAKHICHEVAN (Azerbaijan), May 13 (Itar-Tass) – Azerbaijani President
Ilkham Aliyev believes “there is no need in the signing of new
documents on the maintaining of truce in the zone of the Nagorno
President Aliyev told reporters that the truce, introduced in the
mostly Armenian populated Azerbaijani enclave on May 12, 1994,
“continues and is observed by the sides”.
Speaking at a parliamentary session in the southwestern autonomous
republic of Nakhichevan, Aliyev expressed hope that the sides in the
conflict will reach a peaceful agreement, based on the principles of
“justice and international law”.
He also stressed that Azerbaijan “sticks to several principles”
in the solution of the Karabakh conflict, “and will never renounce
them”. “Territorial integrity must be restored, and refugees must
get back to their homes,” Aliyev stressed.
“We can conduct negotiations basing on those principles, but
no peaceful agreement is possible outside their framework,” the
Azerbaijani president emphasized.
