Leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan declare no territorial claims

May 26, 2023

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said that his country and Azerbaijan have no mutual territorial claims, which could pave the way for a peace agreement between the countries.

According to a Yevropeiska Pravda correspondent, Pashinyan made the statement at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Moscow on Thursday.


"I want to confirm that Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed on mutual recognition of each other's territorial integrity. And on this basis, we can say that we are moving very well towards the settlement of our relations," Pashinyan said.

He also reaffirmed Armenia's readiness to unblock all transport and economic ties in the region and communications that pass through the territory of the Republic of Armenia.

In turn, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said in his speech that we have no territorial claims with Armenia, although the two leaders argued over the situation in the Lachin corridor, which, according to the Armenian prime minister, was seized by Azerbaijani forces.
