President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev addressed the people of Azerbaijan
President Ilham Aliyev: "The position is based on international law and justice. We are fighting on our land. Today, Azerbaijan's Army is dealing crushing blows to the enemy on our soil. Today, our army protects the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan on its oil. What are Armenian soldiers doing in our lands? What is the Armenian army doing in our lands? It is no secret that 90 percent of the "Nagorno-Karabakh army" personnel are Armenian citizens. Armenia is an occupying state, and an end to this occupation must and will be put.
We are on the righteous path! Ours is the just cause! We will be victorious! Karabakh is ours! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!"
