BAKU, Azerbaijan, October 8. If a peace treaty
is signed between Armenia and Azerbaijan, a completely new
political situation will emerge in the South Caucasus, President of
Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in a joint press statement with Prime
Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili in Tbilisi, Trend reports.
“Three years ago, as a result of the Second Karabakh War,
Azerbaijan restored its territorial integrity. Last month, we
restored our sovereignty over the entire country. Now we must work
hard on the peace treaty to be signed between Armenia and
Azerbaijan. If we succeed in this, and I hope we will, then a
completely new political situation will emerge in the South
Caucasus,” President Ilham Aliyev said.
Noting that the countries of the South Caucasus could start
cooperation in a trilateral format, the head of state emphasized
that cooperation in many areas, including transport, energy
security, trade, mutual investment, could be very successful. “Now
the moment has come, and I think it would be a huge mistake if we
miss out on this opportunity,” President Ilham Aliyev added.
