"Today there is a state border between Armenia and Azerbaijan in Tovuz, Gazakh, Aghstafa, there are no peacekeepers there, and nothing happens. I can tell you even more, Azerbaijani border servicemen are now standing five meters from Armenian villages, in Zangilan. Armenian army is demolished, it does not exist," Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said speaking at a conference entitled ‘New Vision for South Caucasus: Post-Conflict Development and Cooperation’ at ADA University on April 13, Report informs.
He cited the 21-kilometer road which connects Kafan with Yerevan as an example of Azerbaijan's good will. "It crosses our territory. We put our border security there, we put even our poster 'Welcome to Azerbaijan!' I don't know why it irritated Armenians so much, we just wanted to welcome them on our territory, it is our territory, but they were shooting at that poster... Can we cut this road? Yes. Do we cut it? No."
