Aliyev noted that the Armenian army does not have even one Azerbaijani military vehicle in its hands, and stressed that the Azerbaijani army has won victory on the battlefield.
Emphasizing that the Azerbaijani army is fighting to save its territory, Aliyev said: “the Armenian soldiers are invaders. They’re leaving their positions and running away. They had built a deep defensive line for 30 years.
It was very difficult to cross this line. In some cases, we needed a few days to get through the positions. At the same time, we do all the work so that we lose a little. We strive to have the highest result the least loss.
Today, Azerbaijani flags fly in the lands liberated from occupation. Today, Azerbaijani soldiers stand guard in the positions of Armenians in the lands liberated from the occupation. Their tanks are now fighting against them on the battlefield.” said.
Aliyev reported that the Yerevan administration had lost itself and was in complete panic, noting that Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called various world leaders and asked for help, begged and humiliated him.
“The only way for their salvation is for them to come out of our land.”the Yerevan administration will regret not implementing the UNSC resolutions,” Aliyev said.
Aliyev, the occupation of the Azerbaijani people and the insults will never be accepted, he said:
“We showed them their place. We’re firing them so hard that they’ll never forget it. Fighting continues on the entire front line. Azerbaijan is strengthening its positions in all directions and we are forcing the occupier and the aggressor to peace. That’s the real purpose of the operation.”
“We have shown them that we are the winners on the battlefield, on the international stage and on the political field. They saw our strength, our will. No power in the world can turn us away from our path of truth. No country in the world can pressure our will. We will ensure our territorial integrity. We’re giving the invader maybe the last chance. Get them off our land.”
Aliyev, who criticized Armenian Prime Minister Pashinyan for his previous speeches and actions, stressed that Karabakh will not be Armenian territory, saying “Karabakh is Armenia”.
Aliyev, who emphasized that Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan, continued his speech as follows:
Now let him say it. Even his voice doesn’t get. Foreign ministers had to attend the talks in Moscow. Let him say there that Karabakh is the Land of Armenia. If he said something like that, there would be no negotiations. What happened yesterday and the day before in the political sphere shows that the Yerevan administration finally understands that Azerbaijan will act on its terms.
It will be what we say. We give them a chance to get out of our land through negotiation and peace. In any case, we will take back our land and ensure our territorial integrity. The whole world saw it. We want no bloodshed. We want no martyrs. We want our own land. Get off our land.
They must not miss this historic chance. The Moscow meeting today will clarify many things. They must accept the basic principles. Pashinyan said he would not give up a single inch of land. So what happened? Why did you run away? Does anyone ask you? We came, we got it back, and we’ll get it. We can get a lot if we want.”
Aliyev reminded that no results have been obtained from the negotiations conducted for 30 years within the framework of the process of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. “this problem is now being solved by military means. First military, then political.
If it were not for this operation, if the attacker had not been dealt the necessary blows, if they had not been taught their lesson, would this now be running to Moscow for negotiations? If they commit fraud after the Moscow talks, they will regret it themselves. We’ll get our land back.
“We want it, let’s get it through the magistrate. We’re giving Armenia the last chance. Don’t let them trust anyone., “he said.
