Azerbaİjan says Armenİa and İts lobby İn US engaged İn useless actİvİtİes
The US foreign policy is determined by the federal government, which, in line with its international commitments, recognizes and supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan within its internationally recognized borders, Hikmat Hajiyev, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, told APA on Friday.
This stance of the US is reaffirmed by the final statement adopted at the GUAM Council of Foreign Ministers and the US during the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on Sept. 22, Hajiyev said commenting on adoption by the State of Michigan of a resolution recognizing the illegal regime created by the Armenian armed forces in the occupied Azerbaijani territories.
“The statement reaffirms the US commitment to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of GUAM member states in line with the US Helsinki Final Act. The statement also expresses concern over the threat of the use of force against GUAM member states,” he added.
Hajiyev stressed that Armenia, instead of contributing to the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through substantive negotiations and ensuring peace in the region, as well as the Armenian lobby in the US and certain people under their influence are engaged in useless activities in a ridiculous way.
