Armenia, making such an unfounded statement, once again demonstrates its disinterest in signing a peace treaty with Azerbaijan, said the statement.

“The West Azerbaijan Community strongly condemns the absurd and slanderous statement of Armenian Parliament Speaker Alen Simonyan about the alleged ‘full or partial occupation’ of 31 Armenian villages by Azerbaijan. Armenian officials should start a dialog with the Western Azerbaijan Community in this direction, taking a real step instead of saying nice words about return,” the community’s statement reads.
