Deputy Prime Minister Ali Ahmadov commented on the statement of the US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Richard Morningstar on the return of seven regions around Nagorno Karabakh.

Ahmadov told journalist that we want the withdrawal of Armenian troops from the occupied territories.

Recalling the president’s words, he noted that Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity can never be negotiable: “Certainly, the issue can be approached only within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. Restoration of territorial integrity may result in different conceptual approaches. Some offer to solve it stage-by-stage, some submit as a package. Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated its position on this issue. As for the return of seven regions, we can accept it as a stage to ensure the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan”.
