Azerbaijan is pleased with the stance of Muslim countries regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict which resulted in the occupation of twenty percent of Azerbaijani territory and over one million Azerbaijanis becoming refugees, said Bahruz Hasanov, an official of the public and political affairs department at the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration.
He made the remarks at a conference, entitled "The declaration of the Year of Islamic Solidarity in Azerbaijan and the strengthening of cultural ties between Muslim countries through the Islamic Solidarity Games,” which was held in Baku April 20, an APA correspondent reported from the event.
He noted that Saudi Arabia and Pakistan does not recognize Armenia as a state, and Turkey, despite having recognized Armenia, does not have any relations with it.
"Some Muslim countries attempt to establish ties with Armenia, which runs contrary to Islamic solidarity," said Hasanov.
He pointed out that cooperation with a country that has been destroying Islamic cultural monuments in occupied Azerbaijani lands is one of the obstacles in Azerbaijan’s way toward liberating its lands.
"Cooperating with an invader is kind of justifying invasion,” the PA official added.
