Azerbaijan supports the concept of an integrated Caucasus, said Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan and Head of the Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev.

“Neighboring countries should strive for good neighborly relations,” Hajiyev said.

He noted that Azerbaijan has very clearly stated that if the separatists and illegal military formations disarm, Baku will be ready to stop anti-terrorist activities and immediately start contacts with representatives of the Armenian residents of Karabakh, whom we invited for discussions in Yevlakh and some other cities of Azerbaijan.

“The Administration of the President of Azerbaijan has once again made a statement and repeated yesterday that we invite the Armenian residents of Karabakh to reintegration,” the assistant to the President said.

He said that anti-terrorist activities have been stopped and separatists and illegal military formations will disarm.
