Armenia is Drawing New War Nearer - Azeri Defense Minister

The Journal of Turkish Weekly

August 14, 2012

Armenia's continuing occupation of Azeri territories is drawing a new war nearer in the region, said Azeri Defense Minister Safar Abiyev.

"Armenia does not want to give back Azeri territories, occupied 20 years ago, which is drawing a new war nearer with every passing day," Abiyev told Myles Deering, commander of the Oklahoma National Guard, according to the Azeri Defense Ministry's press service.

Abiyev informed Deering about the military-political situation in the region and about Armenia's continuing occupation policy. He also said, according to the press service, that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe's Minsk Group has not achieved any concrete results and that Azerbaijan is therefore compelled to strengthen the national armed forces in order to liberate the occupied territory.

Abiyev said that Azerbaijan is the United States' strategic partner and that effective and long-lasting cooperation between the U.S. and Azeri military is of great importance, the press service said.
