Russia has been officially reprimanded several times for such illegal visits. Our Defense Minister has repeatedly sent letters to his counterpart, as well as reprimanded the head of the peacekeeping mission, and the same steps have been taken in connection with the recent illegal visit of Valery Pekres.
Axar.az informs that the statement came from Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev in an interview with local TV channels on January 12.
The head of state said that, of course, this irritates the Azerbaijani side: "We were told that we did not see, did not know, were ignored, he came in an ordinary car, etc. But, of course, this is not convincing, and I I have to say, for better or for worse, that it was an organized trip, because Valerie Pekres could not go with the escort she wanted, they went in a very limited number. She was accompanied by a former French Foreign Minister, EU Commissioner Barnier, a member of parliament. They went there and came back. After their return, the news came, because they were probably afraid that we would stop them in the Lachin corridor. Because if we had known that they were there, we would not have let them back, unequivocally. The Lachin corridor is under our control. .We can park any car there and no one can tell us anything. That's why it happens, it's unacceptable and it's a must be put to an end. According to my information, the Armenian representatives visiting Karabakh appeal to the peacekeeping mission regarding the visits of foreign citizens. It is either allowed or not allowed. In general, I can say that we have accurate information about all the events that took place at the entrance and exit, in Khankendi and in the surrounding areas. Therefore, it is not serious to hide something from us, to say we have not seen, we do not know."
