Armenian leadership is trying to mislead the international community and all sorts of tricks to avoid the peace process and the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev told Trend, commenting the recent statement of President Serzh Sargsyan, who accused Azerbaijan in preparation for war in an interview with Reuters.
"Not the Azerbaijani armed forces are in the territory of Armenia, but Armenian Armed Forces are in the territory of Azerbaijan", - said Abdullayev.
According to him, the Armenian government is composed of people who committed a crime against Azerbaijani people.
"The international community has recognized Armenia as an aggressor. Examples of this include many resolutions of international organizations, of which Armenia is called an aggressor and occupier and which call to liberate the occupied territories of Azerbaijan", - he said.
Abdullayev said that Armenia holds occupied 20 percent of the territory of another state, and its aggressive actions directly threaten the peace and security in the region.
"Azerbaijan will never accept the status quo, sooner or later will restore its territorial integrity and sovereignty. Armenians also know this", - said the spokesman of the Foreign Ministry.
Abdullayev noted that the status quo is unacceptable and also for the international community and co-chair countries of OSCE Minsk Group repeatedly confirmed it.
"With regard to the Sargsyan's stetment - it has populist nature, was made on the eve of the presidential elections, and aims to enlist the support of radical and extreme nationalist circles of Armenia and the Armenian diaspora," - he said.
