Turkey’s NTV channel has broadcast a reportage from the lands, the Azerbaijani armed forces liberated from Armenian occupation in early April.
The Azerbaijani President`s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov has said official Yerevan ignores all calls and remains loyal to its non-constructive position.
“In response to the calls of the presidents of the Minsk Group co-chairing countries, Azerbaijan ceased fire. But Armenia disregards these calls and continues its attacks,” he told Anadolu Agency. “It is the provocative action of the Armenian armed forces that prompted the recent clashes on the line of contact. As always, with these provocative attacks the Armenian armed forces attempted to spoil positive steps taken by the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group in order to solve the problem.”
The U.S. affirmed support for Azerbaijan`s territorial integrity, said US Department of State spokesperson John Kirby following a meeting between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “The two discussed efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Secretary Kerry affirmed U.S. support for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and underscored our concern about violence along the Line of Contact and the international border. He emphasized our commitment to working with the sides to reach a comprehensive settlement based on the principles of international law, the UN Charter, and the Helsinki Final Act,” said Kirby.
“Secretary Kerry commended Azerbaijan`s role in European energy security as a leader in developing the Southern Gas Corridor. He expressed U.S. support for Azerbaijan`s efforts to become a regional trade hub. He also thanked President Aliyev for Azerbaijan`s contributions to NATO`s mission in Afghanistan, its support for peacekeeping operations, and its important counterterrorism role. On democracy and human rights issues, Secretary Kerry welcomed Azerbaijan`s recent positive steps,” he added.

Expressing your opinion to resolutions on Azerbaijan discussed during PACE winter session during your recent interview to “Horizon live” show by Mr. Ara Khachatryan, editor-in-chief of Armenian “Asbarez” newspaper, you stress that the resolution is a one-sided document supporting Azerbaijan. You call the resolution on the “Escalation of violence in Nagorno Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan” by British MP Mr. Robert Walter as a destructive document; state the special role of yours and Ms. Victoria Nuland, Assistant to USA Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, on the refusal of the document, and express that the resolution on water was approved.
