‘Last Chance For Armenia,’ Threatens Aliyev


BAKU (Combined Sources)–“This is the last chance for Armenia to leave the occupied lands voluntarily for the sake of its own future and its own security,” threatened Azeri President Ilham Aliyev Tuesday during the inauguration of a center for the so-called “Azeri Community of Nagorno-Karabakh,” reported the Turan news agency.

The threat comes two days after Aliyev held talks with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who urged both sides to refrain from “use of force or the intention of use of force” to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

In his lengthy remarks, Aliyev said that Azerbaijan had accepted the updated Madrid Principles drafted by the OSCE Minks Group that is mediating the peace process.

He said the time had come for Armenia to adopt the principles, accusing Yerevan of deliberately delaying the process.

The Azeri President said his country’s growing economic and military potential and the strengthening of its position in the international arena will help it restore its territorial integrity.

“Today our army is able to solve any task,” the Azerbaijani President said. Aliyev, however, did not touch upon the mechanism of development of the final legal status of Nagrono-Karabakh during his speech.

In related news, Azerbaijan has denied Armenian claims that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev presented his Armenian and Azerbaijani counterparts with a new international plan to end the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict at their meeting in Saint Petersburg last month, reported Radio Free Europe.

Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian referred to them as “a new version of the Madrid principles” of a Karabakh settlement at a joint news conference in Yerevan with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday.

President Serzh Sarkisian likewise spoke of “the latest version” of the proposed framework accord as he met with the visiting French, Russian and U.S. co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group on Saturday. A statement by his office said the document was “presented in the course of the Saint Petersburg negotiations between the presidents of Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan.”

The Azei Foreign Ministry dismissed these statements late on Monday. “Even though Russia plays a large role in this process and the Russian president has taken part in several meetings [between Aliyev and Sarkisian,] proposals are drawn up only by the [Minsk Group] co-chairs,” Azerbaijani news agencies quoted the ministry spokesman, Elkhan Polukhov, as saying.

“Updated Madrid proposals exist only in the form of a document, and they were submitted to both parties last year,” Polukhov said. “Only various approaches were discussed in Saint Petersburg. The statement by Nalbandian is only aimed at distracting the Armenian and international publics from the essence of the issue.”

The three co-chairs made no mention of the Saint Petersburg in a statement issued after their latest tour of the conflict zone. They instead reiterated the U.S., Russian and French presidents’ joint calls for the parties to “take the next step and move towards completing work on the Basic Principles to enable the drafting of a peace agreement to begin.” They also urged the sides to “strictly observe the 1994 ceasefire and exercise restraint along the Line of Contact.”

“During their visit, the Co-chairs also presented to the parties their plan to undertake a mission to the occupied territories in this fall, which was accepted in principle,” added the statement.

    Military might? Pfffft.
    State-of-the-art weapons don’t equal military might. If King Aliyev the Oil-drenched goes to war with Armenia over Artsakh again, he’s gonna learn that the hard way.
    I wonder what will happen to Azerbaijan’s economy if the NKR Defense Army manages to knock-out those precious oil pipelines running just a few kilometers north of Artsakh’s border?

    What can I say the man looks like a Butcher and obviously is dreaming of bloodshed.

    For a country which did not exist before 1928 and used the Armenian land of Artsakh to form a part of its artificial country (there was no country named azerbaijan and no nation called azeri befor 1928) which in reallity is run by the same turks who performed the act of genocide of 1.5 million Armenians.

    Let him have hopeless dreams.

    LONG LIVE ARMENIA!!!

    So, this also would be the last chance for Aliyev’s hollow drum to beat!

    We really need to come up with better headlines to contain this situation rather than entertain and feed little egos.

    You may have weapons but you don’t have real soldiers. You may need to employ soldiers from abroad, just as you did the last time, but to no avail. They too deserted the battlefield. They are now fighting their own war.
    One question Mr. aliyev? Would you send your own son to the battlefield? I believe not. You feel comfortable with having others sons killed in the battlefield.
    HAVE you NO SHAME?

    Well, I really don’t understand Russia’s behavior especially Medvedev’s. Does Russia want Armenia as an ally or not anymore? I have heard that recently there are conflicts between Putin and Medvedev. And that Medvedev is very naive and takes first Russia’s economic interests than military which is different from ex-Russian president Putin. Sometimes I feel that Armenia is betrayed by Russia. At the same time Russia is not interested to keep Artsakh as a muslim state. They are fed up of Muslims. Sadly, but I have noticed that Azeri diplomats are more successful than Armenian (Nalbandian is silly). Of course they buy all EU members and Congress with oil money but still Armenians should be more active because WE are smart. What about Serzh Sargsyan – I am sure he will never give even small piece of Artsakh land but how long he will be able to resist all this pressure. What about USA behavior ….. I think that their ambition is to build a large Kurdish state.

    While everyone is talking about destroying pipelines, none of us seems to realise that pipelines are not only Azerbaijan’s property. It’s security is provided by all countries who benefit from the pipelines. So in case of war, those countries will deploy joint security forces to secure the pipelines. And any attack on pipelines will be equal attacking those beneficiaries. So I dont think it’s a smart idea.

      RUSSIA WILL NOT LET THE TURKS IN CENTRAL ASIA BOST THEIR ECONOMY TO THE EXTENT OF BECOMING A MILITARY POWER IN THE BOSOM OF RUSSIA.

      THE PAN -TURKISH IDEA OF A TURKISH STATE FROM THE MEDDITERRAINIAN TO THE PASIFIC IS NOT DEAD.

      THIS IS WHAT TODAYS US POLICY IS BOOSTING WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE,
      SINCE THEY ONLY SEE REALITY IN DOLLARS.

    President Serzh Sarkisian says it best:
    “Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh will deal a devastating and FINAL blow to Azerbaijan if it attempts to resolve their conflict by force……We never wanted war, we were simply compelled to defend our homeland at that time, we will not attack first now either. But if the moment arrives, if they force us, our strike must be devastating and final this time around.”

    We will bring our lands back. And we will not be satisfied with this, actually i wanna say that there is not any armenian history even armenian country in the world, there is only armenian populations like KURD. Now we have such power that we can not only take our lands back but also we are able to clear all the armenian populations from the world map.. It would not take so much time for us.. Don not forget for the first time you made a tragedy, and all the world saw this. You are not against the Azerbaijan, your problem is Islamic World. REMEMBER all the Islamic nations will be winner.. I never say armenian country i always say population… So keep your mouse and pray in order not to suffer so much..
