BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – The President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, accused the Minsk group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which is the mediator in the conflict over the Karabakh region, of its lack of impartiality and of working to “save” Armenia.

In a speech to the people on Monday, Aliyev said: “What is the activity of this Minsk group? Can you or do you want to pressure the occupier? No. I have raised this issue more than once: If you want to solve the problem, it is necessary to impose sanctions on Armenia. The matter is in your hands. You are permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, you can solve the urgent problem.”

He continued, “I tell the supporters of Armenia that if you want to save it, tell it to withdraw from our lands, so with your word, it will withdraw.”

The Azerbaijani President said that “those who want a ceasefire send weapons to Armenia,” and that he has a list of the names of those countries.

He stressed, “As soon as we started to liberate our lands from occupation, we began to be under pressure from all parties. Why did the Minsk group fail to solve the problem for 28 years? Journeys, meetings and negotiations – we are tired of these negotiations with the enemy.”

Aliyev added, “Today all capabilities are mobilized against us. I endured the matter for a month, a whole month! I did not talk about that but we were really tired. This is first. Secondly, the mediator must be neutral, and if not, then he should withdraw his candidacy .. on the mediating countries.”

The Azeri are the invaders. In 1920 the Azeri army was away and tried to conquer Karabakh, when the Soviets conquered Azerbaijan. In 1988 when Karabakh wanted to join Armenia the Azeri started to run amok and committed pogroms against Armenians in Baku.

Yes the Minsk group want to save Armenia from Azeri an Turk genocide and Karabakh from conquest and ethnic cleansing.

and of working to “save” Armenia.

He just showed his REAL goal : it’s not getting Artsakh “back”, it’s the destruction of Armenia! Now things are clear and from his own words!!!

A truly Freudian speech error. The dictators of the Shiite and Sunnite Mohammedans want to continue their Christian genocide.

I’ve read Freud’s “Introduction to Psychoanalysis” when 12y old. I NEVER miss a Freudian lapsus…

Aliyev does not really attack the Minks Group… He is just playing the ‘genocidal game’… Actually, we are witnessing destruction of Armenia, as supervised by Putin himself …

Masterminded by the US because the Armenians are not yet an American asset like the Turks, Azeri and Georgians.

Frankly, I’m really dubious about either Russia or USA backing ErDOG’s follies! The guy is controlled by cocaine and fanaticism, just like Adolf, he’s totally insane, that’s all!
