After Fischer resisted saying,” Look again at international law, “he left himself in a difficult position by establishing the sentence” there is no such international law.”

Pashinyan’s response surprised. The prime minister said lengthy negotiations on the issue were ongoing, but declined to respond.
Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that the Azerbaijan administration is ready to make concessions if it responds.
“The disputes should be resolved by mutual concessions,” Pashinyan said. “Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia are ready to respond to the concessions that Azerbaijan is ready to make.”he used his statements.

The 11th day was left behind in the operation launched by the Azerbaijani army to liberate the territory occupied by Armenia. Here’s the latest news and developments.
General Hussein Mahmudov, who heads the Department of international military cooperation of the Ministry of defense of Azerbaijan, told Hurriyet about the point:
“Our army continues to advance on numerous fronts. First, we eliminate enemy firing points. In this context, so far, 250 tanks, armored vehicles, missile ball system 270, 60 air defense system, military trucks and command vehicles and approximately 150 observation 11 territory management, 7 ammunition depot, command center 10, 1 S-300 air defense system we have destroyed.
“Our army has advanced 25 km so far. We have recaptured 27 occupied settlements. The Armenian army could not stand against us at the front. They left a large number of positions and fled. Azerbaijan is fighting for its occupied territory. We are fighting for our own land, our own homeland.”
“Let everyone know that. Our army continues to advance on numerous fronts. We will not stop until we have all our occupied territories in Karabakh. We are close to freeing our own land, victory.”
General Mahmudov says that the contribution of Turkish UAVs and Siha to their success on the front is great: “the UAVs and Siha that we bought from Turkey and entered the inventory of the Azerbaijani army have added great strength to us. He increased the capability of our army in the field of conflict. He has made a great contribution to our air defense system.”
General Mahmudov confirms the claim that PKK terrorists are fighting in the Armenian ranks: “the Azerbaijani army is fighting not only with the occupying Armenia, but also with the terrorist organizations that they are transporting to the front from Libya and Syria. No matter who they bring, no matter who they support, they will not be able to stop the Azerbaijani army.”
“Armenia wants to make the region a nest of terror, we will not allow it. We will clear Armenian soldiers and terrorist organizations that come to support them from Karabakh.”
The Armenian army attacked the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline. Authorities in the region said that Armenian forces threw a cluster bomb near the oil pipeline, and the pipeline was not damaged.
Information was shared that the rocket contained 300 bombs, large and small, two bombs exploded, and 298 bombs that did not explode would be destroyed one by one. A cluster bomb, whose use was banned in 2010 with the approval of 107 countries, is known as a bomb within a bomb. When it explodes, hundreds of marble-sized bombs are scattered around it, exploding in a row and causing the most damage to children.
Armenia attacked the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline the night before. General Mahmudov says that Armenia is pursuing provocation with these movements: “the Armenian army could not stand on the front line against Azerbaijan. He suffered great losses. The Armenian army, which was defeated on the front, fled, leaving its positions and weapons, is now pursuing provocation.”
First, they hit settlements where civilians, innocent people lived. Cities 100 km from the front line fired missiles at ganja and Mingechevir. They targeted the power plant, and now they’re attacking the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline. Armenia, which lost at the front, is looking for provocation with them.”
“Armenia, which is stuck and helpless, wants to include the 3rd countries in the war with these provocations. We will not come to these provocations, we will waste these provocations with the achievements we have received and will receive on the front.”
Aliyev: “the problem cannot go beyond Azerbaijan and Armenia”
Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said that Armenia is trying to attract other countries to the war by attacking Azerbaijani territory. “such an approach is unacceptable. The problem cannot go beyond Azerbaijan and Armenia.” said.
Aliyev, in an interview with Russian Channel 1, made statements about the clashes that began in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan due to the Armenian attacks.
Assessing the possibility that Azerbaijan and Armenia will restart the negotiation process, Aliyev stressed that for this purpose, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions on Nagorno-Karabakh must be implemented.
“The Armenian side does not implement these decisions, ignores them and tries to freeze the process in every way. When Armenia implements the resolutions of the UNSC and withdraws from the occupied territories, the two sides can soon reach an agreement that will ensure peace in the Caucasus.”he made his assessment.
Aliyev noted that the international community, including the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, has previously made statements that the status quo on the Nagorno-Karabakh issue is unacceptable.:
“These explanations remain in the air. Therefore, our position is based on the norms and principles of international law and historical justice. Armenia’s position is based on historical lies and violations of international law.”
“Such an approach is unacceptable,” Aliyev said, noting that Armenia is trying to attract member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization and European countries to the war by attacking the territory of Azerbaijan. The problem cannot go beyond Azerbaijan and Armenia.” said.
Aliyev stressed that the issue is not related to the territory of Armenia, saying: “despite the attacks of the Armenian army, we do not attack the territory of Armenia, we do not move to the side of Armenia. In fact, we have all the possibilities for this., “he said.
Aliyev expressed his readiness to restart the negotiation process with the end of military actions in Karabakh, and said that Turkey can participate in the process of resolving the Karabakh issue.
“Turkey, as a large country and our neighbor in the South Caucasus, has the right to participate in the process of decisiveness after the end of the conflicts., “he said.
Aliyev, who also noted that there were no results in the negotiation process for about 30 years, noted:
“Countries that will have positive effects in the region and reduce tensions are important for peace and cooperation. I think that these countries are Turkey and Russia.”
