Azerbaijan waved its flag over the liberated territories of Armenia
It may be recalled that two days ago in Islamabad, the Deputy Head of Missions of Azerbaijan, Samir Gliyev, had said that Armenia had started the first war after which we retaliated. He said in a press conference that Armenia has started sending armed terrorists to the front, while Azerbaijan is only defending its integrity.
Yesterday, Azerbaijan took control of more areas of the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region and hoisted its national flag there.
It was agreed after 10 hours of talks in the Russian capital, Moscow. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the two countries would now begin “substantive” talks.
However, Armenian Foreign Minister Zohrab Mnatsakanyan later described the talks as “rather difficult” and said Armenia wanted Nagorno-Karabakh to be recognised internationally as an independent state.
Self-declared Karabakh officials echoed this call and accused Azerbaijan of using ceasefire talks as cover to prepare fresh attacks.
Meanwhile, Azeri Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov said not enough pressure had been put on Armenia during the talks and the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh could not remain as it was.
Azerbaijan expected to take control of more territory and the ceasefire would last only as long as it took for the Red Cross to arrange for bodies to be exchanged, he said.
Turkey, which backs Azerbaijan, said the truce was Armenia’s “last chance” to withdraw forces from the disputed territory.
