The fact that Armenia continues to raise territorial claims against
neighboring states suggests that Yerevan does not intend to give up
its aggressive policy, spokesman to the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan
Khazar Ibrahim told a briefing on Monday.
It leaves them out of regional projects, said he.
As to the media reports on the Turkish-Armenia borders, press secretary
stated Azerbaijan takes into account the official position of Turkish
authorities who say they are not about to change their principles
regarding opening of borders with Armenia.
Turkey and Azerbaijan are friendly and brotherly countries, stressed
On the Azerbaijan-Armenia border, Ibrahim said this issue is
very difficult. Greater part of Azerbaijani territories is under
occupation. Armenia must pull out its troops from occupied territories
of Azerbaijan. After that, the full control over the state border
will be restored.
