Pashinyan: Armenia and Azerbaijan recognize each other’s territorial integrity

Speaking at the European Council Summit in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, Pashinyan said, “Three days ago, we took another step forward under the mediation of the President of the European Council, and Armenia’s territorial integrity of Azerbaijan within 86 thousand 600 square meters, Azerbaijan’s Armenia. We underlined that Turkey recognizes its territorial integrity within 29,800 square meters,” he said.

Thus, Karabakh, which came under the control of Azerbaijan as a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 2020, was officially accepted by Armenia as Azerbaijan’s territory.

Reminding that on October 6, 2022, with the support of French President Emmanuel Macron and European Council President Charles Michel, they reached an agreement with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on the improvement of Armenia-Azerbaijan relations on the basis of the 1991 Almaty Declaration, Pashinyan said that the aforementioned declaration will be a part of Soviet Armenia and Soviet Azerbaijan. He stated that he envisaged the administrative borders as state borders.
