Senior Azerbaijani officials are denying claims that Azerbaijan could use force to open a corridor through Armenian territory, insisting instead that a lasting peace deal could be signed soon.
The news outlet Politico published an extensive article addressing the Armenian-Azerbaijani relations. The author talked with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan, the assistant of the President of Azerbaijan.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeyhun Bayramov noted that there are real possibilities of concluding a peace treaty between Azerbaijan and Armenia in a short period of time.
Hikmet Hajiyev, assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, told Político that Azerbaijan does not intend to go military and attack Syunik. According to Hajiyev, the so-called 'Zangezur Corridor' has lost its attractiveness: "We can do it with Iran instead," Hajiyev said.
