'Armenia responsible for continuation of Karabakh war'

The Azerbaijani president on Sunday held Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan responsible for continued war in Upper Karabakh and casualties on both sides.

Ilham Aliyev made the remarks at a meeting with Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku.

Aliyev said the Armenian premier wrote a letter to Moscow asking help from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He said the move to write the letter clearly shows that Armenia has accepted defeat but does not want to surrender.

"It is the most reasonable option for Armenia to declare its defeat, remove its armies from our land and, solve the problems through dialogue,” he said.

“The problem is being solved now. Azerbaijan alone implements the relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council," he added.

Thanking the people of Turkey for their support, he said the Turkish media works in the war-zone risking their lives for factual reportage.
