Baku, 21 May: The president of the International Crisis Group, Gareth
Evans, who was received by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on 21
May, briefed him on his meetings at the Cabinet of Ministers and the
Foreign Ministry. He said that his organization is preparing a report
on the Nagornyy Karabakh problem and that he has held meetings with
the Georgian and Armenian leaderships over a solution to conflicts
in the South Caucasus.

President Ilham Aliyev approved of the organization’s interest in the
region and drew the guest’s attention to the fact that Azerbaijan
has about 1m refugees and displaced persons. Aliyev stressed the
importance of the international public’s close attention to the
Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan.

Aliyev recalled that the OSCE and other international organizations
were involved in the Nagornyy Karabakh conflict settlement. He said
if international organizations understand what is happening here, who
the aggressor is, what the consequences of the aggression are and who
keeps under occupation the lands that do not belong to them, then it
will become known that Armenia is the aggressor which has flagrantly
violated international legal norms, has occupied the Azerbaijani lands
and keeps them under occupation. According to him, if the international
public paid special attention to these points, it would be possible
to achieve a quick solution and strengthen security in the region.

“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
