Azerbaijan is not going to yield a piece of its land to anyone and is ready to liberate the occupied Azerbaijani land at the order of the Supreme Commander.

The statement came from head of the working group on interparliamentary ties Azerbaijan-Austria Javid Gurbanov at the meeting with the meeting with the delegation of the Austrian parliament, headed by second president of the National Council of Austria Fritz Noygebauer, reports.

“We do not fear anyone and are not going to surrender our lands. Armenia has been holding 20% of Azerbaijani lands under occupation for more than 20 years. We support the peaceful settlement of the conflict but if the negotiations are ineffective, we are ready to return the occupied Azerbaijani lands at the order of the supreme commander”, he said.

According to Gurbanov, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev stands for the peaceful resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno Karabakh and is ready to provide the high status of autonomy to Nagorno Karabakh within the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

 “Armenians have already created their state-Armenia on historical Azerbaijani lands and we will not tolerate the creation of the second Armenian state in our territory”, the head of the working group for interparliamentary ties Azerbaijan-Austria of Milli Majlis.

In turn, MP Eldar Ibrahimov expressed dissatisfaction with the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group under the auspices of which two years ago Azerbaijan and Armenia hold peace talks on the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijan over Nagorno Karabakh.

“We do not want to be at war with anyone, but we have to return our lands that have been holding neighbor Armenia under occupation for over 20 years. We are dissatisfied with the activity of the OSCE Minsk Group which sets the provision that the conflict parties must demonstrate the political will and find a solution to the conflict. But why do we need the mediators if we could settle the problem ourselves?”, he said.
