Azerbaijan is ‘ready’ to start peace talks with Armenia, president tells FRANCE 24

Exactly one year after the start of the war between Azerbaijan and Armenia for the control of the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev granted an exclusive interview to FRANCE 24 from the capital Baku. Aliyev said Azerbaijan was ready to “work on a future peace agreement” with Armenia, but warned that any move by Yerevan to reclaim territory lost in last year’s war would be met with a fierce response by his country.
