"I hope that Armenia will eventually accept OSCE Minsk Group's proposal, give up protracting negotiations, by finding various pretexts," President Ilham Aliyev stated while meeting with local authorities in Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.

He reaffirmed that Armenian officials' statements based on the crisis in their country are that ridiculous and subversive, and Armenia is seeking for a new pretext to draw out the talks.

"Nagorno Karabakh will never be allowed to be independent. Their statements on this matter are false," he underlined.

He stated that Azerbaijan can't be compared with Armenia in economic development, and Azerbaijan has left Armenia behind.

Saying Azerbaijan's military budget equals to Armenian total state spending, Aliyev stated that Nagorno Karabakh was offerd the status of autonomy, but this promise could be withdrawn if the negotiations were deliberately protracted. APA
