The signed trilateral statement will become a (crucial) point in the settlement of the conflict – Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev said in a televised online meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin when commenting about the peace agreement signed between Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia to end six weeks of fierce fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh region.
Aliyev said the agreement was “historic” and that Armenia had been forced to negotiate because of Azerbaijan’s military successes.
“This statement has historic significance,” he wrote on Twitter. “This statement constitutes Armenia’s capitulation. This statement puts an end to the years-long occupation. This statement is our Glorious Victory!”
