Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev spoke at an event to mark the
30th anniversary of the establishment of the New Azerbaijan Party
(YAP) on November 21, Azernews reports.
'We have built a strong army. This was the Great Leader's
testament to us. Today, the Azerbaijani Army has already asserted
itself, expelled the enemy from our historical lands in a matter of
44 days, restored historical justice and the dignity of our people,
and is the guarantor of the security of the Azerbaijani state
today,' the Azerbaijani leader stated.
Aliyev emphasized that Azerbaijan has always paid tremendous
attention to army building, noting that some of the work was
disclosed to the public, and some - was done confidentially.
'But as a result, we showed the heroism and professionalism that
is an example for many today. Our international positions have
significantly strengthened. One could talk about this for a long
time, but I will only mention a few points. We became the first
country in the CIS to be elected a member of the UN Security
Council with the support of 155 countries,' the president
Further, he informed that in 2019, the country was elected chair
of the Non-Aligned Movement by a unanimous decision of 120
countries, and due to its successful chairmanship, the term was
extended for another year, until the end of the next year. He
stressed that Azerbaijan successfully operates within the framework
of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Organization of
Turkic States, and many other organizations.
'Even in organizations, we are not a member of, we have many
friends, and the events of recent years and months show this again.
For example, the Collective Security Treaty Organization. We are
not a member of this organization. Armenia is a member of it, and
through this organization, it was intending to raise an unfounded
claim against Azerbaijan. In fact, it wanted the countries that are
members of this organization to confront Azerbaijan. This is a
great provocation and a great crime. However, other members of this
organization did not succumb to this provocation. Some disgraced
Armenia so badly in their speeches that Armenia cannot recover to
this day. So what does this mean? The number of our friends in this
organization is higher than those of Armenia. Why? Because of our
policy and because we are a reliable partner. Why is the attitude
towards Armenia negative? Because they lie everywhere. There is
hardly any door left for them not to turn to in an effort to solve
their problems. All this is obvious. Everyone sees and knows it,'
President Aliyev stated.
