“Turning the territories occupied by Armenia for 30 years into ruins, the complete disruption of the infrastructure, and the destruction of residential areas express the essence of this country. Today, Azerbaijan is implementing large projects, building airports and roads in the liberated territories. It builds smart villages and new and modern cities. I think that the facts I mentioned are not only an indicator of the difference between the states of Azerbaijan and Armenia but also are enough to see who are the real owners of these lands.”

Mammadov noted that today’s events in various regions and significant changes in the system of international relations show that new world order is being formed:

Pragmatism, military and economic potential, predictable foreign policy, and relations based on mutual trust have become the main factors determining the content of diplomatic relations today. From this point of view, now the geopolitical conditions completely favor Azerbaijan.”
