"The Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict must be resolved on the basis of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan," Ilham Aliyev, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan during his speech at 75th session of the UN General Assembly in video format, News.az reports. 

President Aliyev stressed the importance of the inviolability of the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan in his address to the General Assembly. 

"Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity has never been and will never be a subject of negotiations. The sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan must be completely restored. Nagorno-Karabakh is ancient and historical Azerbaijani lands. Karabakh is Azerbaijan!," the head of state noted. 

President Aliyev touched upon the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions that demand the withdrawal of armed forces of Armenia from occupied lands of Azerbaijan and respect the territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan. 

"In accordance with the UN Security Council resolution 853, updated timetable for withdrawal of armed forces of Armenia from occupied territories of Azerbaijan must be prepared. Appropriate UN institutions must contribute to the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions and return of Azerbaijani internally displaced persons to their native lands. The UN Security Council resolutions are not time-specific. These resolutions are valid until they are implemented. Misinterpretation of UN Security Council resolutions is unacceptable," said President Ilham Aliyev. 

The head of state also addressed one vital issue that Azerbaijan is concerned by increasing cases of arms supply to Armenia, especially right after the military provocation of Armenia in Tovuz district of Azerbaijan.

"Active military clashes at the state border stopped on July 16. Next day starting from July 17 until September, we witnessed delivery of more than one thousand tons of military equipment to Armenia by military cargo planes. Taking into account that Armenia is one of the poorest countries of the world and can not afford paying for weapons billions of US dollars, we assume that it gets weapons free of charge," President said. 

Supply of weapons to an aggressor and a country that perpetrated ethnic cleansing significantly undermines the peace negotiations and encourage the occupying state to instigate new military provocations. In this context, we urge all countries to refrain from supplying arms to Armenia," the President said.
