“Armenia’s new National Security Strategy recognizing illegal regime as “free country” is heavy blow inflicted on negotiations”
"Armenia in its new National Security Strategy makes references to the peoples’ self-determination principle for several times. It is noted that the self-determination right of the so-called formation should be recognized unconditionally”, said Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Issues Department of the Administration Hikmat Hajiyev in regard to Armenia’s new National Security Strategy, Ann.az reports.

The assistant to the President of Azerbaijan stressed that Armenia tries to cover up the occupation fact with self-determination principle: "In no case can this principle be referred to Azerbaijan’s Nagorno Garabagh region. This is not a self-determination but an occupation. The conflict should be solved in the framework of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and there is not an alternative to this. As the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev noted, Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity has never been and will never be a subject of the negotiations. Azerbaijani will not allow for establishment of the second Armenian state on its territory.

The strategy document demanding recognition of the right of the so-called formation to unconditional and unrestricted self-determination and recognizing this illegal regime as a "free country” by itself is another heavy blow inflicted by Armenia on the negotiations held in the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group. I think that co-chairs and the international community as a whole should respond to this document”.
