  • Aliyev: Azerbaijan Supports Palestine'S Independence


    June 29, 2011 - 15:54 AMT

    PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan supports the independence of the State
    of Palestine, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stated.

    As he stressed upon completion of talks with the President of the
    State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas, "we believe that an independent,
    sovereign State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital,
    will be soon created. We defend this position now and we will further
    support it at all international organizations. This, on the one hand,
    is our fraternal duty. On the other hand, this position was established
    on the basis of the international law."

    "You and we have common problems," President Abbas stated, in turn,
    noting that "Azeri lands are also occupied."

    President Abbas commented on Kazan meeting, "We observed the position
    of Russia, France and the U.S. in addressing this problem," he said.

    "This is evidence to the world's interest towards the issue. But,
    we say that it is better to solve these problems today than tomorrow.

    Because, no one can guarantee that they will be resolved tomorrow. We
    hope that the Nagorno Karabakh conflict will be settled. We do not
    require anything extra of the international law. We have common
    problems. We want them to be settled. We hope that peace established
    on these lands for the people of the world to live in peace and
    tranquillity," Trend News quoted President Abbas as saying.
