Defense Minister of Azerbaijan Safar Abiyev has met today Myles Deering, Army National Guard major general who currently serves as the Adjutant General of Oklahoma.
Abiyev said Azerbaijan and US were strategic partners. He praised cooperation between Azerbaijani Armed Forces and Oklahoma National Guard.
Abiyev also briefed Deering on the military and political situation in the region. He noted Armenia continues to pursue aggressive policy against Azerbaijan. “Official Yerevan does not want to return Azerbaijan`s occupied territories by peaceful way, and bring a new war closer.”
The minister said OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs` mediation efforts to settle the conflict had yielded no results. “Under these conditions Azerbaijan has no other way to liberate its territories by reinforcing Army.”
