BAKU ACCUSES ARMENIAN LEADERS OF MAKING CUNNING AND INSIDIOUS PLANS
June 7 2012
The leaders of Armenia like to make in everything cunning and insidious
plans, and have constantly, for over 100 years, lived with these plans,
Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Foreign Relations Department
Head Novruz Mammadov told Trend on Thursday. He was commenting on
Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan’s statement on the incident which
took place on the contact line between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops.
“The Armenian leaders like to make such meaningless statements. As soon
as they see a bit “warmer” and serving other purposes attitude of the
West to themselves, they begin to make such meaningless statements,”
He said the delay by leaders of Armenia of the settlement process
through the insidious, cunning, aggressive actions and creating a
stir will turn out to be a tragedy for them one day.
“During the last visit of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
the Armenians have also taken similar sabotage steps, and earlier,
taking advantage of certain circles in the West, its lobby tried to
form a negative opinion about Azerbaijan. However, this position can
never be a success, because all these processes occur in Azerbaijani
territories. If the Armenian Armed Forces leave occupied Azerbaijani
lands, there will be no armed incidents, no soldier, or serviceman
will die,” Mammadov said.
The situation on the contact line between Armenian and Azerbaijani
troops has escalated recently. Ceasefire is violated in all directions
on the contact line between the troops.
On June 5 as a result of the Armenian Armed Forces’ provocation five
Azerbaijani servicemen were killed.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988
when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian
armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992,
including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The
co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group – Russia, France and the U.S. –
are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council’s four
resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the
