For more than 25 years, Armenia occupies 20 percent of Azerbaijan`s territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven other regions of the country, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said addressing the General Debate of the 72nd Session of the UN General Assembly, held in New York.
Armenia went even further in its aggression policy now trying to associate other countries with the illegal occupation through attracting businesses, trade and investments in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, said Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov.
The illegal visit of Canadian MP to Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia is another political provocation of Armenia, said Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Hikmat Hajiyev.
Azerbaijan today marks Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice). The religious ritual of sacrificing existed long before Islam.
