"Azerbaijan is for the peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict
and thinks that we have chances for it," Defense Minister of Azerbaijan
Safar Abiev announced during the session of the CIS Ministers' Council.

He announced that "enormous amounts of military equipment is
concentrated in the occupied areas and illegal sale of weapon and
drugs is realized there."

"All this creates conditions for increasing risks," the Minister said.

Abiev also underlined that "it is time to recognize Armenia as
aggressor and demand them to leave the Azeri territories."

"The Azeri nation will never put up with the loss of its territories
and will use all the possibilities of international right in order
to regain its territorial integrity," Safar Abiev concluded, agency
"Trend" reports.
