Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev announced today, Sunday, that Armenia has no justification for seeking military assistance from Moscow, due to the developments in the conflict in Karabakh.
During a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşolu today, Sunday, Aliyev said: “Armenia has practically admitted defeat. As you know, the Armenian Prime Minister recently sent a message to the Russian President, Mr. Putin. This message was in fact tantamount to admitting defeat. Because the talk is about requesting military aid from Russia, and this is in the absence of any reasons for that.
Aliyev said that Baku "is engaged in its military operations on the internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan, and it has no plans to transfer these operations to the territory of Armenia."
The Azerbaijani president stated that Yerevan, on the one hand, "admitted its defeat," but on the other hand, "does not want to announce its final surrender."
