Azerbaijan’s president Ilham Aliyev had offered to restore Nagorno Karabakh if Armenia would have agreed to peaceful settlement of the conflict.
This was stated by president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko to “Беларусь 1” TV channel after visiting Azerbaijan.
Lukashenko said when he resigns he will “tell a lot of good things” Aliyev had offered Yerevan for the settlement of the conflict.
“One of the proposals was when he told me: “Listen, convey to Armenians, you are in good relations with them, I am ready to restore not only Karabakh but to raise Armenia.<…>. Convey to them to settle the conflict peacefully”,” the leader of Belarus citied Aliyev as saying (quote by “Interfax-West”).
Lukshenko though did not clarify when exactly this conversation with Aliyev had taken place, but noted that the conversation took place before Pashinyan took the seat of Armenia’s PM.
“There was such thing. But the former leadership of Armenia, before Pashinyan, rejected it,” he stated.
Lukashenko said he tells about it publicly for the first time.
