President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has declared victory in the military conflict in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. He said this during a meeting with the servicemen, RIA Novosti reported.
"The Patriotic War is over. Azerbaijan has achieved a brilliant victory in this war, our lands have been liberated from occupation, we have banished the occupiers from our lands," the statement said.
Aliyev also said that Baku would conduct a damage assessment in Karabakh and would demand compensation from Yerevan.
As we reported earlier, on November 10, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Azerbaijani leader Ilham Aliyev agreed to cease the war in the Nagorno-Karabakh region.
"I signed a statement with the presidents of Russia and Azerbaijan on the end of the Karabakh war at 01:00. The text of the already published statement is indescribably painful for me personally and for our people. I made this decision based on an in-depth analysis of the military situation and assessment of people who know it best,” Pashinyan noted.
Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stated that the country supported the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan within internationally recognized borders.
