Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, said that the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev put himself into a dead end, more than 15 years promising his people to solve the Nagorno Karabakh problem by military means. On Friday, June 19, according to Sputnik Armenia.

According to Pashinian, under the pretext of the conflict Azerbaijan has spent billions of dollars that were often “owned by the notorious people” offshore accounts. In the end, Aliyev was unable to explain to their citizens why the Karabakh issue is still not resolved, but understand that the “possible military adventure will cause irreparable damage to Azerbaijan and will destroy its anti-democratic power”.

“And to divert attention of the people to get out of this impasse, it raises the degree and scale of their statements, trying to make up for past failures, new and more absurd promises in the future,” said Pashinyan.

In 1991, Nagorno-Karabakh, mainly populated by Armenians, declared independence from Azerbaijan. Baku tried to retake the region by force. In 1994, Azerbaijan, Armenia and the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic with the mediation of Russia signed a Protocol on ceasefire. Periodically military action in the region resume.
