Interfax - Russia & CIS Military Newswire November 6, 2018 Tuesday 1:39 PM MSK Azerbaijan's military power is key factor in Karabakh settlement - Aliyev BAKU. Nov 6 Azerbaijan will continue to build up its military power and sees this as one of the critical factors in the settlement of the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, as international law continues to be fully ignored, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said during a working visit to Azerbaijan's Agdam district. "We will continue to build up our military power, and I believe this is one of the most important factors in negotiations. Because, unfortunately, norms of international law are being fully ignored. We will achieve what we want. We demand justice. We demand that our historical lands be liberated from the invaders, and they will be liberated," Aliyev said. Baku stands ready for any developments in the settlement of the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, he said. "I hope that after correctly analyzing the situation in the region, the Armenian leadership will withdraw its occupational forces from our lands. Otherwise, any option is possible, and we stand ready for any option," Aliyev said. Azerbaijan showed two years ago that it can liberate its lands in a legal way, he said. The events taking place in Armenia show that the policy pursued by Azerbaijan is producing results, he said. "I have said repeatedly, and I want to say today as well, there is no need to conceal this - we will continue to isolate Armenia from all regional projects using all means available, and we will restore our territorial integrity," Aliyev said. "The new Armenian leadership must not repeat the mistakes of the previous regime. It must withdraw the occupying forces from the seized lands in the near future through negotiations, and it should give Azerbaijani citizens the chance to return to their native, historical, ancestral lands," he said. "The sooner they understand this, the better for them and for the region. I'd like to say once again that we are not going to resign ourselves to this situation. The norms of international law fully support our position, and historical justice is on our side," Aliyev said.
