AZERBAIJANI MP: WE WILL NOT ALLOW A SECOND ARMENIAN STATE TO BE ESTABLISHED IN OUR LANDS
April 13 2010
Modern Armenia has been established in our territories, and we will
not allow second such a state to appear in our lands once again,
Azerbaijani Member of Parliament Aynur Jamalgizi said commenting on
Armenia’s delayed response to the updated Madrid principles.
"This document contains a provision on referendum in Karabakh, which
could not but cause concern. But after Baku announced that referendum
is possible only throughout the country, everything fell into place,"
the MP said.
"If this provision of the Azerbaijani Constitution is observed, the
updated version of the Madrid principles generally meets Azerbaijan’s
I think we can agree on de-occupation of five regions of Azerbaijan
in the first stage, followed by the return of refugees there and the
restoration of communications. In this case, I believe that if we
agree to provide Armenia with an access to Lachin corridor, then in
return we should get a ground connection with Nakhchivan. Later the
status of Nagorno-Karabakh should be resolved," the MP added.
"The most negative development in the Madrid process is the fact that
the principles of territorial integrity and the right of peoples to
self-determination are taken as equal. Maybe a nation, who has been
deprived of this right, has the right to self-determination, but not
Armenians. Armenians had once determined their destiny and created
their own state on the territories of Azerbaijan. We will not allow a
second Armenian state to be created on our lands. This is impossible,"
